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.

  • Blue, Brown, or Orange
  • 100% cotton
  • Dry clean only
  • 26" W x 80" L (66 x 203.2 cm)
  • Handmade in and 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!

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!
