Named after the first female scientist in India -  Asima, these orange and cream Kala Cotton pillow cases are handcrafted from heirloom organic cotton grown in Gujarat, India. Handwoven on traditional wooden looms by award winning artisanal community of weavers, they have a natural and earthy vibe. The bright handmade tassels add a pop of color to the otherwise muted color tones.
The pillow fabric is handcrafted on hand-operated wooden looms, one of the oldest methods of textile production in India. The looms require no electricity or punch cards to guide the design, only skill, techinique and vision of the weavers. The yarn is made from heirloom organic cotton grown in Gujarat, India. The crop is purely rain fed so unlike large scale industrialized cotton production, it doesn't require vast amounts of water to grow.  It is also organic since it needs no pesticides and has high tolerance to diseases and pests.  

Soil to Studio uses time-honored techniques like handloom weaving, block-printing, natural dyeing, and hand embroidering to slow make table linens, pillows, wall art, rugs, and scarves in intentional, small batches. Each piece is made by artisans in rural villages and communities in India from natural fibers like wool, organic cotton, Indian linen, and silk. Founder Swati Bansal was born and raised in the small town of Udaipur in Rajasthan, India, where her upbringing fostered a strong appreciation for slow made textiles and handmade techniques. Soil to Studio’s mission is to empower artisans and their families, preserve local craftsmanship techniques, and to create sustainable livelihoods for their artisans. Soil to Studio follows fair trade practices and asks artisans to set their own prices for the pieces they make. Soil to Studio is also committed to sustainability by using low energy manufacturing techniques, utilizing solar power, rainwater collection and the reuse of post-production scraps. Soil to Studio is a POC-owned and women-owned brand.
