Red Cotton Bandana - Natural Dye
Naturally dyed bandana in 100% organic cotton is a useful and beautiful piece of cloth with many different adaptations. Wear it as a small scarf around your neck or to tie up your hair. It can also be used to wrap a gift or as a table cover. This design features a petal and bloom design with a zigzag border.
This Ajrakh style is a traditional block printing technique using hand-carved wooden blocks and natural madder dye. The process involves around 15 steps including scouring, washing, printing, dyeing and final washing and can take up to three weeks.
Much of the beauty and depth of Ajrakh cloth comes from the intricacy of the imprint that is left by the artisan’s hand. Slight variations are to be celebrated. These Ajrakhs are made by the Khatri family residing in the Kachchh desert of Gujarat, India - a family that have been block printing for over nine generations.
Bandana measures: 61 x 61cm (24" x 24") Note: Colours may appear differently depending on monitors and lighting.
Care Instructions: Your cloth can be gently machine or hand washed with cool water. To protect the natural dye you must use a pH neutral liquid detergent (as for washing wool). Wash with similar colours and immediately hang to dry or tumble dry on medium heat.

How do I clean my traditional fabrics?
Some colour transfer is to be expected for hand-dyed and indigo fabrics for the first few washes. So fabrics should be washed separately, without soaking. Hand washing in cold water with a gentle soap and line drying is recommended. It is advisable not to tumble dry or to use bleach. This will help preserve the softness and long life of your new fabrics.

What if I need to return an item I have ordered?
Handmade fabrics, especially vintage items, by their nature will have some variations in colour, texture and design throughout the piece. I have endeavored to make this clear in our descriptions and photographs. Note that many items have been made in small villages and that these variations should be expected. These are the special qualities that make each handmade piece truly unique.
Many fabrics are one-off pieces and you will never find another one like it. I wish you to be happy with your order, so please contact me within 10 days of receiving your order, if you have any concerns. Please note that I don't accept exchanges or cancellations, or returns for changing your mind.
I will accept returns if I deem goods to be damaged or defective but cannot accept returns for personalised orders. Items approved for return must be shipped back to me within 14 days of delivery. Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
