Handspun Organic Cotton Throw in Natural White
This luscious throw uses 100% local organic cotton, and the handspun threads make for an extra cozy and luxurious wrap-around. Use it as a blanket on your couch, bed, or outside on those chilly summer nights.
Three panels handwoven on a backstrap loom have been combined using hand-stitched "randa" with natural indigo-dyed cotton. All of the fibers used for this piece have been grown, harvested, processed, spun, dyed, woven .... all by hand and by one family at Lake Atitlán. You can still smell the natural indigo in the fibers - so calming. The warp is undyed natural white cotton, and the weft organic cotton has been dyed in natural indigo.
Our friends over in San Juan la Laguna fertilize their cotton trees with a local ant poop - yup, poop. When the ants clean out their homes, so to say, the droppings can be harvested, and left by the cotton trees.
This throw measures 45 inches by 80 inches, plus fringes.
This item ships directly from Guatemala.
