Our Basanti Ikat Scarf is hand-woven using 100% cotton in a beautiful Ikat weave design. The scarves are woven by master weavers in Eastern India and many artisans are involved in each aspect of the process–from spinning and tie-dyeing the fine cotton yarn to setting the loom, weaving, and hand-braiding the tassels. No electricity is used at any stage of production, making these fair trade cotton scarves an eco-friendly work of art that will last for generations. Dimensions: 27" x 78".
