This exquisite duppatta or shawl is handcrafted in India exclusively for BuDhaGirl. Made of 100% organic cotton by Ethicus, its large paisley pattern is created with gold Zari thread. Paisley is an ancient Persian symbol later finding its way to the Celtic regions it became and is a classic motif in woven fabrics. Measuring 48 by 96 inches the shawl is a marvelous wrap, pareo or even throw. Each Diva shawl is crafted by artisans reviving traditional weaving techniques on jacquard hand looms in India. Our shawl is ethereal in weight and texture.
Ethicus, the company responsible for weaving our Diva shawl is part of Apachi Eco-Logic. Apachi Eco-Logic helps farmers in the Kabini elephant corridor to adopt organic cultivation of fine cotton to prevent chemical contamination of fragile forest reservoirs. Tracing the path from Kabini cotton farms to Pollachi, at the foothills of the Anaimalai tiger reserve, Appachi cotton produces ethical textiles while promoting awareness of tiger conservation activities.
MIndful Glamour Ritual: Pause. Be aware of the motion and intention of wrapping, beautifully protecting the inner core. Go, Be it.
Thought: Enveloping oneself in fabric can conjure the intention of feeling protected, not excluding the world; allowing it to come to us in a place of safety.
