MEET THE ARTISAN
CRAFT BOAT
Located in: India
Social enterprise Craft Boat works with artisans who practice eco-conscious principles while creating innovative products. To create the table linens and drawstring bags, they form the fabric from cotton yarn. The cotton plant provides fibers that are transformed into yarn, and the artisans weave the yarns together to create the textile and fabric. Next, they fold and tie the textile once with a thread in preparation for the dye. The linens and bags are beautifully and naturally dyed with indigo and blush dyes, which are derived from plants and trees abundant in India. These colors are transferred to textiles, and the artisans fold and tie them to form intricate, unique patterns. They untie, dry, and iron the fabric. In the final stages, the textiles are stitched together to completion.
