Designed by the artisans and made using the traditional Kalamkari process, this striking tribal inspired scarf is named Picchu after the mountain peaks it calls to mind. The natural deep red dye is made by boiling alum with alizarin, creating a rich amber hue on organic cotton. Black comes from iron boiled in pomegranate.
The Kalamkari art form is a traditional technique that involves 23 intricate steps. “One day, one process”, our makers say, taking the time to achieve maximum colour richness and fastness using natural ingredients that are gentle on your skin and theirs. This stunning scarf will enliven a simple black or beige outfit, and can be used as a head wrap too. We recommend folding it diagonally for styling around the neck.
Size: 110cm x 110cm / 43" X 43"
