    Handmade 

    The pillow fabric is handcrafted on hand-operated wooden looms, one of the oldest methods of textile production in India. The looms require no electricity or punch cards to guide the design, only skill, techinique and vision of the weavers. The yarn is made from heirloom organic cotton grown in Gujarat, India. The crop is purely rain fed so unlike large scale industrialized cotton production, it doesn't require vast amounts of water to grow.  It is also organic since it needs no pesticides and has high tolerance to diseases and pests.  

    By choosing this handmade piece, you help preserve craftsmanship and support rural artisan communities. We truly appreciate your support. 

      Who was Razia Sultan

      She was the empress of the Delhi Sultanate. She ruled for a short period of four years. A member of the Mamluk dynasty, she is known for being one of the few women in history to have ruled a large empire and the first sovereign female ruler in both Islamic and Indian history. At the zenith of Razia's power, her empire included large parts of today's modern Pakistan, India and Bangladesh.
