The all process of this shawl from the seeding of cotton to dyeing on fabric was by hand. This large wrap was woven with organic handspun yarn by a handweaver in a small village in China. The dye was made by a small fruit farmer on the top of the mountain in Japan. Loop of the Loom combined these two beautiful materials for people looking for the real clothing.

Both farmers produce ethical and high-quality materials over 100 years.
