Hand-Crocheted Lace-2cm

Width: 2cm, #30

Content: 100% organic cotton

Sold by the 3m bundle


This beautiful hand-crocheted lace is made with the Godavari Delta Women's Lace Co-operative which provides equitable employment to women artisans through Fair Trade production. The designs are based on historic patterns and are made from GOTS certified organic cotton. Each
card holds 3 meters of lace and is available in five naturally dyed colors. Approx. width = 2 cm.  Please note: expect some variation in size due to this lace being made entirely by hand.

Reviving historical practices, with contemporary environmental thinking and current scientific advances, trimmings are dyed by BioDye in India, with a closed loop system. BioDye uses dyes and mordants that are environmentally safe. Dyestuffs are obtained from sustainable sources such as leaves, fruits, and regenerative stems. Waste materials are biodegradable, with compost and irrigation water used to grow dye, medicinal plants and food crops for in-house consumption. Through a collaboration with village women's groups, dyeplants and firewood are collected from renewable plantations and used in fuel-efficient stoves in the dye house. BioDye also work with local farmers to support the re-introduction of indigo in agriculturally depleted regions, thereby contributing to sustainable livelihoods.
