Mahiya Ikat Scarf
Soft and lightweight, this scarf is a beautiful accent. The intricately woven ikat print is created from pit looms, with 6-7 pedals below the ground level. The entire family is involved in different stages of production, from the reeling and spinning of the yarn to the dyeing and weaving. The looms are kept in their homes and both men and women are part of the process.
