Khadi Weavers

We work with weaver communities of craftsmen and women in India who use traditional methods which have been passed down and perfected over generations to hand weave our cotton pillows.

The communities source their organic cotton from local farmers. Grown in a dry region, the cotton doesn’t require much water. Next, the cotton is hand-spun into thread and then hand-dyed by the rangrez (dyer) in a bath of natural dyes including flowers, leaves and spices.

After dyeing, the thread is dried and then masterfully woven on handlooms. The resulting cotton fabric is known locally as “khadi” and began as a movement started by Mahatma Gandhi to promote the thought that Indians are capable of being self-reliant and can break free of British rule.
