"Varanasi is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend..." -Mark Twain
Handmade in Varanasi, India, this exclusive ABC collection captures the mystical vibrations of one of the oldest, holiest Hindi cities in the world. Tucked along the ancient Ganges River, Varanasi has a deep connection to textile production - it is the birthplace of the paisley pattern and renowned for the finest silk saris in India. Local artisans hand-loom the raw silk and dupioni fabric of each pillow, then dye them in rich, exotic hues that reflect the color and culture of this magical city. Shades of cinnamon, black cardamom, star anise, and coriander saturate the raw silk, all visceral in color and completely unique.
