Tradition combines with luxury in this exquisite hand towel, which is comprised of handspun, organic coyuchi cotton, and naturally dyed indigo cotton for a textured beauty that is beyond compare. These textiles are produced by a socially-focused collective who help to provide a positive stream of income to nearly 300 families in the state of Oaxaca. Their organic cotton is grown on the coast on small plots of land, using no pesticides. It’s processed by hand and spun into string on wooden Ghandi spinning wheels. After this, the textiles are carefully woven on standing foot pedal looms. Our pieces are then sewn locally by our seamstress. These sublime hand towels are pre-washed, pre-shrunk and offer decadent beauty to any space.
Originally started in 2010 with a group of 30 women, this project maintains a focus on supporting the local economy through work opportunities that range from raising cotton crops to weaving and embroidery work. The brown and white cotton that is used to produce their textiles is native to the Mexican states of Oaxaca and Guerrero. In addition to using strictly organic cotton, they only use natural dyes that are not harmful to the environment. The group works with over 200 spinners who produce their handmade cotton, with the primary focus of their collective project being to support the economy of the local community by upholding cultural traditions and paying a living wage in the process. Further to this, the group also moves to educate the public about the toxicity of the industrial textile industry.
