Handmade summer weight Scarf from Then thousand villages
This scarf takes about a year to make beginning with making the indigo ink. First, the indigo is harvested and dried in the sun. Then the dried leaves are flipped over using a broom until they turn a navy hue. Eventually the leaves are turned into a lovely indigo dye which is then used for the Indigo Waves Shibori Scarf. The pattern of this scarf was created through a dying technique called Shibori, which is similar to tie‒dying. The scarf is then crafted with love and care by fair trade artisans who are given a place where they can earn a fair wages with a fair trade partner that works with leprosy colonies and rehabilitation workshops in villages throughout India. Their work is ensuring fair wages and empowering those who have limited opportunities due to the stigma of physical disabilities.
