WomenWeave is an organization dedicated to empowering & improving the lives of women who weave in rural India.
I was very happy to find their stall at a craft showcase fair in Delhi.

These scarves and wraps are handspun, handwoven, in pure cotton handprinted with botanical source dyes.  They have a lovely soft nubby texture and of course each handwoven piece is unique.
