Eco Dyed Towel by Himalayan Tapestry from India

$20.00

I 1st saw this process in India in 2014 and was fascinated. I wanted to find a way to introduce the traditions of natural dyeing to The Marketplace. Eco dyeing is a slow process of creating rich and unexpected colors from plants by boiling them in a metal pot. The leaves are then layered on cotton to create a unique pattern in incredible colors. This is truly an art form. The towel is hand loomed by the leprosy colony. The fabric at the bottom is then eco dyed to create a beautiful and unique pattern. These would look great in your kitchen or powder room. They would also make a beautiful gift. Be prepared to be amazed by the natural beauty of eco dyeing!

Dimensions: 24 x 15 inches

Himalayan Tapestry is a ministry from Rajpur India that works with women in challenging situations. They empower women by investing in them and teaching them a trade. I recently had an opportunity to visit their workshop and meet the ladies. I saw first-hand how they dye fabrics and create beautiful shirts and skirts. Himalayan Tapestry also empowers women by running a local coffee house and bakery that overlooks the beautiful Himalayan Mountains. They teach them how to be a barista, a baker, and run a sustainable business. We are so excited to partner with them.

Empowering people. Changing lives.
