bhujodi handloomed shawl
a little lagniappe. when our friends at the artisan shop connected us to the bhujodi weavers making beautiful shawls with embroidery and mirror work, we jumped at the opportunity to design a few ready-to-wear pieces using the traditional textiles. these beautiful handloomed shawls look as perfect draped across your shoulders as they do on the arm of your most comfortable sofa.
all artisans have determined their own wages for both the raw materials and the stitching of these items.
- size: shawl 85" x 35"

about the artisan shop:
during the second covid lockdown in india, loom and hand, raaha, and ka-sha partnered together to launch a not-for-profit initiative. the artisan shop is a movement of collective action to support india’s weavers and artisans. the artisans hold the power to decide the value of the product. this ensures reduction in inventory, reduced reliability on donations, access to open economies, and keeps home workshops running.
within the first 60 days of launch, the artisan shop onboarded 20 artisans and supported them with clearing inventory of over 150 pieces, reaching customers in 8 countries.
