Named after the first sovereign female ruler in India - Razia Sultan, these Kala Cotton pillow cases are handcrafted from heirloom organic cotton grown in Gujarat, India. Handwoven on traditional wooden looms by award winning artisanal community of weavers, they have a natural and earthy vibe. Pairs very well with our Asima and Anna pillow!
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.
