It was a gift to a friend. She loves it, and her friend wanted one like it.
Scarf for good

I love this scarf and the fact that it is keeping a live a centuries old handloom technique.
Lovely, lightweight scarf

Lovely, lightweight scarf. The weaving is very loose, however, and pulls apart easily, so it must be treated delicately. But it's so nice overall, I will purchase another color.
Great gift for a particular mother

I bought the blue one as a gift for my very particular mother and she loves it. And I feel good about buying it from the Grommet. Phew, thanks Grommet and Indigo Handloom!
Great purchase.

The color (beach) exactly as shown. Scarf is large enough to serve as a wrap over a dress on a cool evening, but lightweight enough to war as a traditional neck scarf.

Calypso Scarf

Made in rural villages in India using centuries old handloom techniques, Indigo Handloom brings together an ancient art form with bold contemporary designs.

Indigo Handloom

San Francisco based Indigo Handloom is a company devoted to preserving the craft of handmade scarves and textiles in India. Founded by former journalist Smita Paul, she became interested in the world of handlooming while researching the fabric trade in rural areas. Indigo Handloom's scarves combine traditional Indian weaving methods with a modern, Western aesthetic.

The beauty of these scarves lies in the gorgeous hand-dyed and crafted materials and in the fact that they support a fading industry--socially, economically and environmentally. Indigo Handloom creates jobs for local artisans and fairly treats and compensates them for their skills and expertise (the average worker can support a family of eight). Emissions are very low impact, as no electricity or other energy sources are used to produce the goods.

The soft 100% cotton Calypso scarves are made for those who wear them and for those who wove them too.
