MATERIALS + PROCESS
Masterfully handwoven on a traditional foot pedal loom that creates a unique and unmatched texture. It was naturally dyed in the workshop using natural minerals and plants.
Its unique Potai pattern is achieved using a technique that results in a brushed marble-like print. A paste is made of pomegranate peel, turmeric and sesame oil. The artisan applies the paste on the cloth using a piece of woven cloth using broad strokes. When the application is complete, the fabric is then dried and dipped in a solution to set the dye.
