Here’s a little step-by-step of the process…
Matt trying to learn the weaving process on the looms (we’ll leave that up to the women from now on!)
Meanwhile, the coffee beans are roasted & ground by hand.
Then the finished scarves are soaked in big tubs of coffee
After being dyed for about an hour, they’re rinsed and hung on the line to dry…
…and you get the soft, beautiful, finished product!
(because of the inconsistency of dying with coffee there are 2 shades of this scarf — “light roast” & “dark roast”!!)
