Indigo Shibori Throws . PillowpiaPillowpia
Indigo shibori throws are perfect for the beach, a picnic or for a cozy night on the couch. This Japanese technique dates back to the 8th century. Traditionally, a white cloth was folded, bunched or twisted, then tied and finally dipped into an indigo dye to create a one-of-a-kind organic patterns. Small irregularities or variations in the color should not be considered a defect, this is specific and part of the charm of an entirely handmade product. Each throw is similar in pattern but truly one of a kind. 48 x 67 inches. 100% cotton hand dyed in India. Wash separately for the first few washes. Machine or hand wash in cold water with gentle soap. Rinse under running water until any color bleeding stops. Hang in indirect sunlight. Iron on cotton setting.
