A GumCha is more than a scarf, towel, air conditioner or shawl. A handwoven GumCha has been a traditional gift in India’s rural communities since Buddha walked the trails leading through the service area of the GumCha4Health Project. There’s a special — somehow ancient — feeling when you drape a friend’s neck with a GumCha and say a few words of well wishes. It’s fun to give someone a GumCha, a “blessing in cotton,” and we think people everywhere will find it a fine and useful gift.
