Gauzy Cotton Check Scarf

CAD 125.00
Prussian Blue/Mid Olive
Size: One Size

Our Gauzy Cotton Check Scarf has been handwoven on traditional flying shuttle looms by a small community of weavers on the outskirts of Kolkata. To create the scarf, the cotton yarn is dyed by hand, before being wound into a warp. There are nearly two thousand yarn ends in the warp, resulting in a very fine, lightweight and gauzy cotton fabric. The loom is then threaded; a slow process, which takes a full day. The weavers here are highly skilled and the community is proud of its heritage and rich textile traditions.

Cotton Care Guide

Cotton is a versatile, comfortable and breathable fabric and is easy to look after. At TOAST, we love cotton for its ability to take dye and retain bright colours and intricate prints.

Obtained from the fibres surrounding the soft seed pods of the cotton plant, cotton is a natural and biodegradable fibre that has been used since antiquity. The fibres are cleaned and spun into threads before being made into a variety of fabrics, from denim and corduroy to poplin and twills.

How to wash

Cotton can be washed at 30 degrees in the machine with similar colours. Try to wash your cotton less frequently to maintain the shape, colour, and quality of your garment.

How to dry & store

Reshape your garment whilst damp by holding the side seams together and shaking. Cotton is best dried flat or hanging to prevent the need for ironing. If an item requires ironing, then it is best to do so whilst slightly damp or using the steam setting.

Hang your cotton clothes away from direct sunlight to prevent fading.
