STORY

 

This shawl is traceable from seed to weave: The cotton for this shawl was grown and processed 60 kms from where it was spun, dyed and woven by our partners in Wardha, Maharashtra. 

The cotton is farmed by small scale farmers who choose to grow their cotton without the use of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. 

The ambar charkhas (small 8 spindle mechanized spinning units) used to spin the yarn for this collection of shawls are solar powered, eliminating the physical labour required to wind the charkhas by hand. 


We visited Magan Khadi in March 2022, and brought back a small selection of their beautiful shawls to share. To learn more about our journey, read our Journal.
