This Indigo Diamond Pillow Cover features real hand-dyed indigo textiles that are hard to find and these are a true work of art you will be proud to display in your home. You can really tell the craftsmanship of the ancient technique that went into making these.
The dying tradition is a meticulous and time-consuming process. Natural indigo contains no chemicals or toxic metals and fabrics dyed with indigo are believed to be good for the skin.
The cotton used to make these pillows is planted by hand and watered by the monsoon rains. It takes eight months for the plant to produce the cotton flower, then it is picked by hand, ginned by hand (a difficult and tedious activity), and then spun into yarn by hand. Traditional wood and bamboo looms are used by weavers to transform the cotton fiber into cotton cloth.
