Lu Dani is a handwoven fair trade rebozo where the traditional and contemporary textile art meets. Made with natural indigo plant dye.

Carefully woven of thick 100% cotton threads with white and indigo blue threads.
The blue areas are wider on the edges and fade towards the center.

Threads are hand dyed so the forms on each rebozo vary slightly and each piece is unique. The texture is pretty thick and has a grasp in it.

Lu Dani - On the Mountain in Zapotec language.
 

An excellent garment to add to your outfit and to wrap yourself in. Makes also a great table sheet. 

Available on both shorter and longer lengths. 

 

About the Dye:

Indigo - Indigofera Suffruticosa- is a native plant to Mexico. Our indigo dye comes from the Istmo region of Oaxaca and is produced by a family that still preserves the knowledge of the alchemy how to create the plant dye. The blue color that fascinates people from different cultures is also called as 'the king of dyes'.  The plant belongs to pea family and makes the plantation soil better. Medicinally it is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidative, antitumor, antimutagenic, anticonvulsant, gastroprotective and has hepatoprotective activities.
