Rigid Heddle Tintes Naturales Friendship Jacket     

As you weave the fabric for this colorful, easy-to-construct Friendship Jacket you will not only be creating a gorgeous garment, but you will be giving the women of San Rafael, Guatemala a chance of a better life and honoring the skills they have spent a lifetime learning.

You'll delight in the brilliant but earthy natural colors in shades of cochineal, indigo, osage orange, madder and overdye of osage orange with indigo. The natural, undyed 8/2 stripes makes the colors pop!

Easy to warp and weave on any 2-shaft loom (rigid heddle) with at least a 23" weaving width and a 12-dent reed using a beautiful 8/2 cotton manufactured and hand-dyed in Guatemala. Woven with a combination of plain weave with weft floats and paired warp floats.

Friendship Jacket is a one-size fits all, with pockets. Very easy construction and assembly.

Hundreds of hours of volunteer time have gone into this kit from the first inception of the Natural Dye Project some five years ago, to the tireless volunteers working in the field, to the designing of the towel instructions, to our blogger, graphic designer, marketer and distributor--all volunteer hours so that the women of San Rafael can envision a better life for their daughters and sons. This is the first time in their lives these women will be able to earn a fair trade, living wage.

Click HERE to learn more about the Natural Dye Project and the dozens of volunteers who helped these women increase their income through their desire to learn the art of natural dyeing, so that they could send their girls and boys to school for a better future. See video below.

This kit is made with the same yarns used in our Friendship Towels with Tintes Naturales and includes complete instructions for weaving this Friendship Jacket on your rigid heddle loom plus instructions for weaving four towels on a rigid heddle loom. Kit makes either one Friendship Jacket or four (20" x 30") towels.
