Beautifully handwoven raw silk is a great fall/winter weight with all the luxury silk offers. Handwoven by women at CraftBeauty, an all-women artisan organization aimed at helping rural women earn a regular monthly salary to support themselves and their families. Working with a variety of fabrics in their native Vietnam, the artisans of Craftbeauty have managed to create opportunity where before prospects looked grim. Originally rice farmers living in a small cultivated area subject to the whims of weather, their farmland began vanishing to a new threat - development of apartment housing. They have a workshop where women can come together to work, but also have opportunities for women to craft from home. Now these women earn more than three times what they made farming rice, which makes them the primary source of income in their village and allows them to provide a better future for themselves and their families.

  • 70% cotton / 30% raw silk
  • 69" L x 15" W (175.2 x 38.1)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from Vietnam

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!

January 7, 2013 - This scarf was better than expected. Very long and wide enough to wear in many different ways.

January 7, 2013 - I was delighted with this scarf. I purchased it as a Christmas gift and found the quality was better than described. The person I gave this to was very happy with this gift. Plus this purchase helped feed people, a wonderful gift in itself. Thank you.
