We call it Crossweave because it is yarn dyed - so the warp is one colour and the weft (side to side) is another colour. The yarns are dyed by hand before weaving and the result is a beautiful rich smooth and interesting fabric. Woven on small handlooms in Kerala from ethical cotton, always organic, GOTS certified. Width is usually 120. may vary a little from batch to batch. Usually preshrunk, but they will continue to shrink after washing so please test yourself. Quality is great but handwoven fabric will always have small imperfections.
