Our sustainability of the operations;
There are absolutely no chemicals used in the dying process. Creating the dying water is the only step that produces waste. It is reused until the natural dye is completely exhausted. At that point, the water is either disposed of in the local garden used to produce the plant material (indigo, ebony, milkwood, etc.) for the dyes, or in the nearby rice paddies. In either case, this is valued for the natural fertilizing agents provided to the medium. This is a 100% biodegradable process.
New scarves/shawl are usually rinsed once in the local river (must have strong current), and then an additional 5 times at the weaving facility. This is done not only to soften the rough, hand-loomed cotton, but also to get rid of the rice flour applied to the thread during the weaving process, for traction.
