Handspun handkerchief (black gingham)


Handspun, natural dyed and handwoven cotton handkerchiefs made at a small village in Laos. The cottons were picked at their home gardens. They make the black colors by first dying them in indigo and then adding the Red colors which are dyed by the secretion of lac insects. Working from 7AM to 6PM, they can only make 5pcs per person. There are few black dots and yellow stains which comes from the cotton seeds. They become heavenly soft as you use them.
