Shibori Napkins in Indigo - Set of 4
A set assortment of 100% cotton napkins with 4 unique shibori designs in deep indigo and natural white. Shibori is the Japanese term for several methods of dyeing cloth with a pattern by stitching, binding, folding, twisting, or compressing. Artisans bind sections of cloth with thread to achieve desired patterns, depending on how tightly and where the cloth is bound. Raw materials used in this process are locally sourced cotton fabrics and non-toxic vegetable dyes. These napkins are handmade and certified fair trade in the dry desert climate of western Rajasthan, India, where people rely on crafts, tourism and mining for their livelihoods. With new international markets open to them through our fair trade partnership, artisans are gaining economic stability and future generations can enjoy a more fruitful life.
