Most of our wovens are composed of artisan-made fabrics. You’ll find that colors slightly vary, ink drips sneak in, and small irregularities (like small slubs and "kitties" which are bits from the air that get woven into the fabric) are evident in the woven fabric. In some handlooms, there are bands evident in the fabric which represent the weaver's energy throughout the day (more dense in the morning!) and the humidity in the air. These variations are a stamp of handmade luxury and means your purchase is unique and special.
Treat your MIRTH items gently and with care, and they will last for years to come.
Our sweaters are knit in small family workshops in Lima using Alpaca wool, Alpaca blends and Pima cotton. Alpaca is naturally antibacterial and odor-resistant, so consider washing less often. Agitation and heat break down the fiber, so gentle washing is important.
