Oversized for use as a throw, blanket, bed cover or outdoors. Made of ultra-soft cotton in a traditional hand-operated Malabar wooden loom. Subtly accented with embroidery and tassels. Our spin on this 500-year old tradition was to combine two separately loomed designs using a seamless stitch. Pre-washed.
100% Handloomed Cotton
80 x 50 in.
technique: Malabar Handloom
Along the southwestern "Malabar" coast of India, in an oppressively humid equatorial climate, what you wear is important. Handloomed cotton from this region is renowned for its rich texture and high absorption capacity and is commonly used to make towels and airy apparel. This is also our lowest energy textile - no electricity is used in the entire process. Yarn is hand-spun, then hand-dyed and line-dried, and eventually hand-loomed.
