Did you know that cotton was not naturally white? We have genetically altered the plant over generations and generations of growth, naturally selecting only the whitest plants because they were easier to color. Now there's a small group of people growing heirloom varities of cotton plants that actually produce fiber in colors other than white! This piece uses completely undyed organic cotton that was grown and spun in the US.
Waves is a series of scarves that uses a unique weaving technique called ondulé, which distorts and curves the warp threads. This creates areas of density and areas of transparency, creating and undulating visual effect.
This shawl is perfect for those blistering hot southern days to protect your skin from the sun, but still let breath and breeze through.
