-Durable and Comfortable
-Does not wear out easily

The colour is derived from Natural heat dyes which are extracted from natural ingredients at a temperature of above 50 degrees Celsius and is totally plant based and chemical free.
The colour on the runner is derived from Indigo and handmade using the Eco-Printing Technique.
Eco printing is a technique that transfers plant colour and shape onto the cloth. Eco Printing creates natural impressions of leaves, using the natural pigments, tannins and acids present in leaves, by combining them with mordants, moisture and heat on the fabric.
