Celebration Egyptian Scarf

Outlet! Was $6.95!
Celebrate compassion, stability, peace, and fair trade practices with the uncompromising quality of traditional Egyptian weaving. Hand-woven by rural artisan families in Egypt, these scarves -- ferkas -- have been sold or traded to Sudanese women to celebrate social milestones for centuries.
Egypt's decades-old trade embargo against the Sudan has had an enormous impact on these artisans, forcing them to rely on a meager trickle of seasonal tourism. Through the efforts of the Nagada Weaving Project, artisans have been able to find a global market for their crafts, providing them with a steadier income.
- 100% cotton
- Dry clean only
- 26" W x 80" L (66 x 203.2 cm)
- Handmade in & fairly traded from Egypt
Created to help women worldwide gain economic security for themselves and their families by earning fair wages for their handiwork, Global Girlfriend sources women-made, fair-trade imported, eco-friendly products. By supporting long-term partnerships with the artisans, it fosters equal employment opportunities, healthy and safe working conditions, technical assistance, and development strategies to help reduce poverty, one community at a time. Become a "Global Girlfriend" and help build a brighter future for girlfriends around the globe!

September 15, 2014 - Just wanted to say how much I LOVE my scarf. The fabric is so silky and luxurious. This is a great scarf year-round since the fabric is lightweight for summer but wide and drape-y enough to bundle up with when it gets chilly. I got the 'brown' color and its much more beautiful than shown - rich olive green and warm pumpkin colors - perfect for fall!
June 25, 2013 - I bought the brown scarf. It's a slightly unusual but very warm color combination. This scarf is long enough to be more versatile than some. Soft and drapey.
December 7, 2012 - I bought this article wanting a quality, natural-fabric, and substantial scarf, not a tiny and insubstantial piece of fabric. I was not disappointed! I bought the blue which was true to measurements and quality. The only thing I would like to comment on is that the picture of the blue shows some white stripes which are actually a pretty, lighter blue, but it could just be the picture taken, or my screen. The scarf is absolutely beautiful! Thank you!
