Fairtrade Yellow Hand Block Zig Zag Cambric

Fairtrade Yellow Hand Block Zig Zag Cambric


Regular price £17.28

A matt cotton fabric with a mustard yellow base featuring a hand-drawn zig zag design in deep red and black. The fabric is woven and printed in a Fairtrade weaving unit certified by the WFTO. The design originates from India and is printed by hand using a "hand-block" technique, which gives it a truly rich, authentic feel. It also has a crisp texture, good drape, and a full body with a close weave that is unusual to find in hand-woven fabrics. The fabric is lightweight and completely opaque, and you'll notice the material softens with more use and washing.

The cotton used in this product is grown organically, although it does not have organic certification, due to the additional expense this incurs, which the weavers can not currently afford. The dyes used on the zig zag fabric are azo-free, and totally ironable and colourfast (although we always recommend washing your fabrics before you make).

As it is a hand-made product, the process uses virtually no energy or water! Due to the hand-woven style of the fabric, it may contain some small weaving irregularities - this adds to its rustic appearance and doesn't affect the look or quality.
