fancy blanket

by AUNTIE OTI

After years of collecting utilitarian objects from other lands, in 2011 Susan Hahn founded Auntie Oti. Auntie Oti is a collection of everyday items from India with a special emphasis on khadi: hand woven fabrics made of hand spun yarn. The collection purveys the everyday of India, where humble and practical items are often multi-purposed in their functions. A gent’s woolen shawl becomes an impromptu blanket. The utilitarian gamcha is a towel, a neck scarf, or a head wrap to keep the sun out. Unadorned simplicity and versatility is why they continue to endure in the pragmatic culture of India today. A seemingly infinite variety exists within a single category. Plain weave towels with their ever-changing borders, patterns, sizes and color combinations still serve the simple purpose of drying oneself after a bath or doing the dishes after dinner.

"The collection is an expression of my love of textiles, travel, and awe of the exotic." All items are produced on a local level. Many goods are made at home on a lone loom and each piece is personified by the individual hand of a skilled artisan. While no two lots are alike, each is beautiful in its unique way.
