For centuries in West Africa, the indigo cloth was a symbol of power and wealth. This exquisite throw is handwoven by artisans in Burkina Faso and dyed with indigo powder extracted from the leaves of the Indigofera tinctoria plant. Although the use of synthetic indigo is widely prominent today, there are still small groups of artisans that still process the plant to create traditional gorgeous pieces such as this.
Why you'll love it: Your purchase of this handwoven throw supports artisans in West Africa to earn a fair wage and an opportunity for sustainable employment while practicing time-honored artforms.
For a pop of color, drape this throw over a chair, the arm of your sofa, or the edge of your bed. This throw also makes a perfect choice as a wrap on chilly nights or to host a picnic.
