Striped Lightweight Handwoven Cotton - Black/White
($18.00 per meter)
Handwoven by skilled artisans in Bengal, India, this fabric was crafted using indigenous weaves and techniques. This ultra-lightweight cotton is made from yarns dyed with azo-free reactive dyes and woven together to create its unique striped design. This fabric is naturally breathable and soft to the touch with a light, airy drape that’s perfect for a variety of makes. Stripes are 2mm wide and run parallel to the selvedge.

Due to the handwoven nature of this fabric, the grainline may be slightly askew and you may find colour variations, slubs, or ties within the yardage. We encourage you to embrace these irregularities as they are a natural part of handcrafted textiles.
