*** This handwoven Zigzag throw is made to order. We will run a production when 10 throws are ordered ***
How about a beautiful, handwoven zigzag throw in natural cotton to snuggle up under? It’s a great way to keep cosy on these cold evenings and a fabulous way of dressing up your living space.
This handwoven Zigzag throw is very special, not mass produced but created by hand in a social enterprise.
Your handwoven Zigzag Throw is 100% cotton, woven by hand into a gorgeous chevron design. They’re large, thick and cosy – 138cm wide by 216cm long – in a choice of 4 colours – red, green, navy and yellow.
These throws are woven by hand in a rural co-operative in Gujarat, India. Weaving this twill fabric is a specialist job, using a hand powered loom with 4 paddles – it takes skill and precision to perform such a traditional craft. You can see a video of a throw being woven below….
The cotton is sourced from local cotton farmers and production is virtually carbon free as hand powered, so it’s very eco. The co-operative has the a mission to provide livelihoods for marginalised workers, focusing on women and rural workers – they’re all paid and treated as you would wish.
Our pre-order model cuts down on waste in production and packaging, as well as reducing carbon in transportation. Get in touch if you need to know how soon we’ll be running a production.
