Cotton shawl, 'Balangan Rainbow' (Indonesia)

Made Osiani of the ROLE Foundation weaves a cotton shawl with a whole rainbow of colorful stripes. The ROLE Foundation's "Weaving Futures" program enables her and other Balinese women to create their own income while at the same time reviving traditional weaving techniques. The shawl is created using all-natural plant-based dyes in muted shades of indigo, brownish-red, greenish-yellow and brown.
