Plant-Dyed Linen Napkins
By: ADIV Pure Nature
These 100% linen napkins are made with love in India. Each is completely unique and one-of-a-kind, those you receive will vary slightly from the ones pictured. Measure 21" x 21". Set of 4. Choose from Indigo Clamp, Marigold/Onion (white + gold), Indigo/Marigold (blue), or Rose (white and purple).
Nirmaalya is the Sanskrit name given to flowers, fruit and other natural offerings that were made to Hindu gods during worship.Traditionally, these were blessed and then immersed in a body of water as an offering to nature. Today, in India, nirmaalya are simply thrown away by the temple authorities. These napkins have been dyed with these Marigolds, Roses, Coconut husks, and Hibiscus blooms. This returns them to water as tradition calls for, and addresses temple pollution in Mumbai.
Wash in cool water and tumble or line dry in the shade to avoid dulling of the colors. Can double as a fun bandana! See photo.
