RARE PALETTE WITH NAVY, RED, TAUPE, YELLOW & OLIVE!Mahatma Gandhi-ji on Village Industries and the Ancient Art of Spinning Cotton, Harijan, February 19, 1938. I have often said that if seven lakhs of the villages of India were to be kept alive, and if peace that is at the root of all civilization is to be achieved, we have to make the spinning wheel the centre of all handicrafts. Thus my faith in the spinning wheel is growing every day and I see it more and more clearly that the Sun of the wheel will alone illumine the planets of other handicrafts. But I go a step further and say that just as we go on discovering new stars and planets in the vast solar system, even so we shall go on discovering fresh handicrafts every day. But for the sake of this thing, we have to make the spinning wheel the really life-giving Sun. This Stunning 70s, Hand Block Print Wrap Skirt is Made in India by Village Industries and features a Warm, Traditional Color Palette on a Deep Indigo Ground with Fiery Tomato Red, Tangerine, Ecru, Taupe, Earthy Olive Green, Dark Forest Green, Bright Milky Green, and Antique Gold -- the Perfect Hippie-Era Boho Look for Spring through Fall!
