The Indigo Kantha Table Runner is made with soft 100% up-cycled cotton material that is hand tie dyed in the shibori tie dye style by artisans in Rajasthan, India. Women artisans do the intricate hand stitching, known as kantha, and make the pom pom tassels for each end. These fair trade table runners are a work of art, and showcase the incredible textile traditions of India with sustainable materials.
