- 240 x 250cm (will fit a double/king size bed)
- 100% khadi (hand-spun and hand-woven cotton) *
- Hand-dyed with locally grown botanical indigo

* There is currently no source of certified organic cotton within Bangladesh, so this product is made of non-organic cotton. We have chosen to include it in our collection because the other benefits associated with it, such as the use of botanic indigo and artisanal skills, are extremely positive. The cotton has also been spun and woven locally, contributing to rural livelihoods. 

Washing Instructions: As this product has been dyed with natural pigments derived from plants, it is important that it is washed using mild detergent only, i.e. detergent that contains no bleaching agents (including oxygen-based ones) or enzymes. Alternatively, this product can be dry cleaned.
