Product Description

Clearance Disclaimer

Medium open check. This is a very open weave, but after washing the fabric will crinkle and fill in to become less open, with a horizontal emphasis. The scale of repeat is 1" square, and the yarn used is a single-ply*.

We found a small village on the island of Java in Indonesia where the men handweave these cotton scarves and shawls on handmade wooden looms. The intricate openwork patterns have been handed down through the generations, father to son. The natural cotton thread is purchased in big "hanks" and wound onto spools using old bicycle rims. The loom is then "dressed" which is very time consuming. The weaving itself then goes relatively quickly. We are getting them in 11 patterns, each in 4 sizes. Being completely handmade, the charm is in the irregularities and the sizes are approximate. They can be dyed and tie-dyed with our Fiber Reactive dyes into any of 100 colors. Because of how long they take to make and get here, we can't be sure they will always be in stock, so get 'em while we got 'em.

*There are two types of cotton yarn used in these scarves,
1) "Singles" yarn, meaning single-ply yarn, is used in scarf styles 2, 7 and 9.
2) The other scarves are woven with a fine 2-ply yarn.

Due to the handmade nature of this item all sizes are approximate.
Shrinkage: Expect approximately 10% shrinkage in both directions, with hand washing and line drying. Keep them away from your washer and dryer.
Each size has an additional 2-4 inch "loose" fringe on the two ends.

Love them. However the musty and moldy smell would probably put off younger buyers who weren't familiar with how to launder and treat moldy smelling clothes. I had to use hot water detergent Febreeze and lots of fabric softener then hung them outside to deodorize.

I have been very happy with the products I have ordered and the shipping times .. most generally the products have arrived before the scheduled date! Thanks Dharma Trading!

These scarves take the dye easy -- do shrink alittle however if ironed are very beautiful. Do be aware that the fringes will "open" up - I ended up knotting the ends for a more finished look. Will order again!

For the price these scarves can't be beat. As a weaver however I had to only give it four stars for all the long strings where knots were tied. But just cut them off and its fine. Other than that nice quality good patterns.

I'm not pleased with the fringe on the ends. When I washed the scarf before dyeing it all of the fringe sort of came apart and it looks pretty bad. I'm not sure how to repair it.

Go for the longest and widest scarves because there is a lot of shrinkage and once they are dyedwashed they crinkle up. Very pleased with this product.

not quite what I expected very open weave and a slightly rough hand. Condenses when when washed and set edges dont stay stable. But has its uses if you are looking for a spongy rustic fabric.
