THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: Matr Boomie
In western Rajasthan, India, economic opportunity is scarce. Most residents of this dry desert region rely on crafts, tourism, and mining for their livelihoods. Through their fair trade partnership with Matr Boomie, the small group of Muslim women responsible for making your scarf are connecting with international markets and exciting new prospects for economic stability.
Traditionally a Japanese technique, Shibori is a process of dyeing cloth in which stitching, binding, and folding are used to create geometric and tie-dye patterns. The intricacies of this demanding craft have been passed down through many generations of women to the ones whose hands expertly crafted your new piece.
