The cotton yarns for these scarves are first handspun and then dyed with indigo or other natural dyes. The yarn is then handwoven on handlooms. The technique is known as Jamdani. A Persian word dating back to Mughal times - Jam - flower and Dani - vase. The oldest known Jamdani fabric dates back to the 3rd century BC!
