These Kala cotton throws are made from an indigenous cotton that has largely been forgotten. This is a very pure simple item that John Patrick uses in his home – a beautiful textile to enjoy. He also uses it for outdoor picnics and as a beach blanket.
Kala cotton is an indigenous varietal from Gujurat, India and one of 20 native varieties that once existed in India. The fiber fell out of favor over conventional GMO cotton but was revitalized when growers realized that the plants require only rainfall and no irrigation with a high tolerance for disease and pests.
