A rare, undyed organic cotton that was born brown, thanks to its inherent properties. Lovingly oversized so you can wear it a lot as a scarf, shawl, sarong or double duty as bed or table runner for that elegantly natural vibe. Thank you to the women of Tuban, East Java who keep farming and weaving old-fashioned brown cotton. They crafted Ayumi for almost 3 months because they were farming by day and weaving by night.
100% Handloom woven, hand spun cotton: With the loose weaving of handlooms, this fabric is so breathable that it keeps you cool in summers and warm in winters. Lightweight and velvety soft.
100% natural brown cotton: variations in browns are not defects, they're natural colors of the raw brown cotton.
A Love Story of Giving
At Love Stories Bali, we shifted gear in 2021 in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic by focusing on supporting artisans from home-based workshops so they can sustain their livelihood. We are so happy to support the weavers of Tuban, East Java. They are also the farmers who continue to preserve the farming of old-fashioned brown cotton in traditional ways and without the use of harmful chemicals. The result is groundbreaking!
Indigenous weavers weave magic for this scarf, as they keep the flame of this dying art alive. Weaving requires the weaver to be strong and use both engineering skills and creativity. Weaving by hand is the interlacing of two sets of yarn - the warp (length) and the weft (width) using a loom - a wooden equipment that facilitates the interlacing without the use of electricity. Weavers inherit the skill from their forefathers and in turn pass it on to their children so weaving can sustain their livelihood.
- Made for longevity so you wear or use it a lot or share - as scarf, shawl, sarong, or even as bed runner, bed throw, sofa throw, wall hanger. Feel free, earth-loving, edgy.
- Size: Length: 93in * 235cm. Width: 30in * 75cm.
- Care for long-lasting handwoven cotton: Cold hand wash or machine wash with like colors. Use eco-friendly or gentle detergent. Air dry in the shade or tumble dry low. Mend when torn.
