100% Organic Cotton handloom handwoven front with plain back pillow cover with bottom invisible zipper and tassels at four corners.
We started with two handloom weavers in 1975 and in the beginning of 2020, we work with approx 61 looms engaged in Kala cotton and Mashru weaving. We try and support the livelihoods of around ninety families connected with us for their income generation throughout the year... Another artisan cluster we work with is Manipur, famous for its special fabrics like moiraingphee, leirum, lasingphee and phanek. Tribal textiles are woven on a loin-loom, a type of back-strap loom commonly used by hill people. The warp of manageable length and breadth is prepared and fastened at one end generally to the wall of a house or to two fixed poles while the other is tied to the waist of the weaver with a cotton or leather belt. Sometimes the belt is woven out of cane or bamboo.
