We are excited to offer naturally dyed bandanas printed in traditional Pakistani Sindh block prints. These bandanas are a part of the Sama’a Collection from Handwork Studio and are first printed with a mud resist, then dyed in natural indigo or madder roots.
Sama’a means “a moment” in Urdu and often refers to a significant change, a moment of great beauty or spiritual awareness. The textiles used in the Sama’a collection are produced in collaboration with artisans working in Ajrak dyeing in Sindh, Pakistan. In this complex and ancient process, artisans work in complete harmony with their environment: the sun, river, animals, plant dyes, trees and mud are all part of the art of making Ajrak. Using regional natural dyes and dyeing slowly with numerous layers creates fabrics that are nuanced and rich in surface and color.
Handwork Studio works with artisans around the world and is committed to design innovation through socially and environmentally sustainable methods.
We love these bandanas for their softness and brilliant colors. I’ve had mine for a couple of years and they are so handy for keeping your neck warm in winter and light enough for everyday use in warmer weather.
