We love cotton

Posted by Rebecca McDonald on

We love cotton. Handloomed and handmade textiles are what we are all about.

That’s why we love our Khadi/ dhurrie throws. 100% hand spun cotton woven into this natural dyed deliciousness.

Some of these are one of a kind, and they are all slightly different as that is what hand made is all about.

Stamping the same pattern each time, with the different colours and wood block stamps as needed. All by eye. Smudges and colour fade, are all the unique joy of...
