Semilla bandera necklaces

Semilla bandera – ‘seed flag’ in Spanish. They are made by huichol people, native american ethnic group of western Mexico. This is a very traditional beading work for the huichol, and usually they incorporate designs inside of the flags. For dosa exclusively, they made solid flags. Claudia, who owns a company called Kalosoma (http://kalosoma.com.mx), has been working very closely with the artisans in Mexico. We were so happy to be able to collaborate with her and the huichol!

The colors are available in blue, yellow, cranberry, red, orange, white, and turquoise. Flags are about 1cm (3/8″). Because they are hand-made, the sizing slightly varies:

The chain is about 16 inches:

Blue outfit

Rhonda had a beautiful outfit in all blue today, even the shoes. It was so pretty that I had to take a photo of her. She always put things together so well.

She has ballet wrap, aleppo tunic, and lungi….. and gudi mudi scarf. Look how pretty the stripe and blue indigo together:

This is aleppo tunic:

Lungi. Can be worn as a scarf too:

Sheer wool shawl

lightest wool in the world (I think). Soft as feathers……


Gudi mudi scarf

Gudi mudi project is based in Maheshwar, central India. It is a program supported by Women Weave, which is NGO dedicated to improving lives of women weaver in rural area of India. Gudi mudi project creates more sustainable means of income for the local cotton farmers and more jobs for women who were previously unemployed. They use organic, local Nimari cotton. The textile is hand spun, hand woven by the women.

It’s always good to know things you like come from a good place that has meaning. This beautiful scarf definitely came from a good, sustainable place. It feels good to own it.

There’s so much more to learn about Gudi mudi project and Women Weave. Here are a few links:
