Beautifully made with plants gathered from Indian temples & hand-loomed by artisans in India using the same yarns and methods they use when making robes for the Dalai Lama.
The simple elegance of our fair trade shawls belies their detail and workmanship. From spinning the finest yarn and gathering temple blessed flowers and herbs, to the time-honoured slow dyeing methods, delicate hand fringing and sajani embroidery; our shawls are as individual as the wearer and carry the passion, devotion and stories that are part of their creation, radiated back to you.
Misty Morning - a gentle alchemy of temple-blessed plant dyes with eucalyptus to help boost immunity, holy basil to ease anxiety and edged in roses to open the heart to love.

Ayurvastra harnesses organic yarns infused with pure dyes made from a precise combination of medicinal herbs, barks, flowers and oils to gently heal and harmonise the mind and body as only plants can. When wearing Ayurvastra dyed yarns against the skin during meditation, the body’s ability to fully benefit from the plants medicinal properties increases.
Khadi is the art of hand spinning fibres that results in uniquely subtle variations in width, density and plant dye absorption. In a world of mass-production, khadi gives villagers the opportunity to earn a fairtrade income without the need for any outlay other than a spinning wheel and their time. Where a fossil-fuel fed spinning machine might require two operators, the same output through hand spinning yarn would require 100 artisans.
Sit in a comfortable position, wrap yourself in our generous shawl, connect and just be. Carry on your travels to feel protected and calm.
100% pure organic cotton - fair-trade shawls - made in India.
Hand-loomed shawls can vary slightly in size due to the tightness of the weave, but the size is approx. 250 x 90cm.
Our shawls should be hand-washed with a mild detergent in cold to lukewarm water. Do not wring, but gently squeeze out excess water and leave in to dry, out of direct sunlight.
They are hand-died and all unique and sometimes slightly vary in colours from the original pictures.
The colour of the plant dyed shawls can fade over time but this only adds to their unique beautify and evolving nature.
