The weavers tied the scarf after weaving and immersed it in a bath of natural indigo dye.
This created a unique and beautiful pattern.

Woven by hand

In the hot season there is no work in the countryside.
Women then sit behind the loom and make the most beautiful pieces of fabric.
They do this in the same way as their ancestors.
They weave by hand, using the techniques passed down from mother to daughter.
This is how they try to earn something extra.

We visit these ladies and buy their thin batik scarves in indigo blue color.
The weavers are very happy with this extra support.

Fine, thin wire

The fine rayon thread with which the scarf is woven makes it super soft.
This makes the scarf feel very nice.
It is lovely to wear.
It is especially comfortable on cool spring and summer evenings.

Indigo paint from nature

The weavers dye their shawls themselves.
They also do this by hand, making sure that nature is not polluted.
Indigo plants grow in the fields near the weavers.
The weavers make blue dye from these green plants.
The scarf is dipped and colored in this natural paint.
