Handspun Cotton Scarf in Natural Indigo
Organic local cotton fibers in natural white are handspun and handwoven on a backstrap loom to make this extra soft scarf, then dip-dyed in natural indigo with loose shibori. Dominga and her family at Lake Atitlán grow cotton and process it all by hand, a laborious and beautiful process. Abigail from Mysa in Antigua.
The cotton fiber will get softer with use - what a transformation to see after years of use.
The tradition of preparing cotton fiber by hand has significantly diminished since industrial cotton mills came about - but this eco-conscious practice is seeing a resurgence in Guatemala.
Choose from Soft Indigo (dyed in a panela/sugar vat) and Deep Indigo (dyed in an iron vat).
