The agate yellow Munnar shawl encapsulates the feeling of a healing touch. Made of handwoven linen, the stole gets its sunny hue from natural dyes extracted from the leaves of the eupatorium plant, celebrated in homeopathy for its soothing properties.
The stole was dyed at Aranya Naturals, a non-profit organisation tucked away in the pristine hills of Munnar, Kerala. Their extraordinary work to revive slow, natural processes has been a source of learning through Nila’s journey. The subtle ombre effect and brilliance of the natural dye is a testament to the expertise and skill at the Aranya Naturals workshop.
After the dyeing process, the stoles were brought to Rajasthan and hand-finished by the women associated with the Bagru chapter of our sister organisation LBCT. Nila’s training sessions with the women of LBCT create a space for skill development, particularly with crafts that translate into better livelihood opportunities.
Made with care, carrying sustainability and style at its heart, the Munnar Shawl evokes a sense of wellbeing as it rests softly against the skin. With its brilliant, uplifting hue and intrinsic, natural healing properties, it makes for a memorable piece.
