Handwoven products, such as furnishings and other fabrics, are made by hand using a handloom. They are not like typical machine-made, factory-made goods. Maybe that’s why they make a home look and feel more sophisticated. But that’s not all. Read on to know how handwoven products are different from, and better than machine-made products.

Sustainability

Pollution, global warming, climate change, environmental degradation. These are words you hear or read on a regular basis. But how many of us are actually being able to do something about them?

What if we told you that handwoven products have been promoting sustainable living for centuries? As these products are woven by hand, they don’t require electricity and don’t pollute the air. Plus, there is less waste generated and less Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emission due to the lack of automation.

The weavers have plenty of opportunities to adopt sustainable practices, while you can practice sustainability in style.

Quality

Farm-grown cotton is collected, cotton fiber is spun into yarn, and then it is woven into cloth on a handloom. Post this, the cloth is treated with environmentally safe, natural dyes.

Weaving by Hand
Handwoven – the name itself suggests that the tap of the loom is controlled by a human and not a machine. So, each weave feels different. The loom creates a character. And the professional weavers give great attention to detail. All this make handwoven products boast of superior quality. And why not!

Comfort and Style

What is luxury without comfort? Handwoven products are definitely comfortable. Now, we know comfort is subjective. What is comfortable for you, may not be comfortable for me. And vice-versa. But people generally find handwoven products soft and comfortable.

Handwoven Floor Cushions

Handwoven products made of 100% cotton are much more breathable than polyester and other synthetic fabrics. And they are also super stylish! The kind of style where you can see and feel the difference. Handwoven fabrics immediately make any room look chic, and bring the traditional and modern world together.

Of the people, By the people, For the people

That’s why, they are often used over the back of a couch or chair, or draped over the arm of a sofa.
