A favorite at the shop!! Perfect as a throw blanket or draped across the back of your couch, this fair trade hand woven textile features a stunningly modern stripes and railroad pattern to compliment any space!
Originally handcrafted to be worn at weddings and special ceremonies, to be given as dowry and to be passed on as family heirlooms, these incredibly detailed hand-loomed textiles feature traditional Chin patterns with a modern twist. To give you an idea of the amount of time and energy put into a single weaving, a typical table runner takes between 20 - 30 hours to complete.
Made by women's cooperatives of Chin artisans from Myanmar, these Fair Trade textiles help generate income for families in the region while simultaneously passing on the knowledge of traditional weaving. Yoyamay currently employs about 200 weavers, and continues to grow with every purchase made.
Perfect as a throw blanket draped along your couch or the end of your bed.
