A sustainable rain fed, handloomed brown cotton with a naturally dyed white and indigo stripe.
This type of naturally brown cotton is pest and drought resistant which completely changes the way the cotton is farmed, without the need for chemicals or artificial irrigation. This cloth has been produced in a way that is focused on ecological sustainability, social justice, and economic stability for the farmers and weavers.
This cloth would be beautiful for both clothing and interiors. Suitable for dresses, tops and skirts. We would make a Florence top or an Ellsworth shirt.
