Cowboy Scarf - Winslow Handwoven

120.00

Handwoven Cowboy Scarf

"Winslow" features tonal stripes of silk and cotton earth reds- each outlined by a plied texture yarn. At one corner pyramids are created by a special supplementary weft technique done while the textile is still on the loom. (The weavers call this stack of small motifs “buti”.) At the opposite corner the design comes together in a classic check. No matter which way you wear it, Winslow was designed to be a bold statement scarf. Woven with Khadi (handspun) cotton and silk this weave is gauzy with subtle textures and shine.

Ethical Production in India

WomenWeave, a registered Charitable Trust based in Maheshwar, MP, has supported and developed the role of women in handloom weaving since 2002.  WomenWeave’s mission is to work towards overcoming the vulnerability of women who weave on handlooms and work towards making handloom a profitable, fulfilling, sustainable, dignified income-earning and life-improving activity.

Handloom weaving is not only an important cultural treasure, it is also the second largest source of livelihood to the rural and semi-urban population of India. India is also the largest producer of handwoven cloth in world. Today, the sector is at a critical moment in time in which it simultaneously faces stresses that threaten to obliterate it and unprecedented opportunities for innovation and revitalization.

About our Collaboration

In a collaborative spirit, WomenWeave interprets original Last Chance designs into limited edition scarves. Each design demonstrates a careful arrangement of colors in the dyed warp and weft yarns. The palette derives from Last Chance Textile’s exploration of natural dyes. WomenWeave extended the process into their own techniques for hand-spun and naturally dyed yarns. This textile is an example of the finest work produced by these skilled artisans.
