A featherweight blend of cotton and silk makes our scarf sumptuously soft and dreamy to wear. Delicious colors brighten your wardrobe -- and your whole day.

Silk is collected from cocoons whose moth inhabitants have already begun to emerge, with small holes being cut to enable the moths to emerge without having eaten through too much of the cocoon. The moths live and the workers collect the empty cocoons for use in spinning the silk fibers.

  • 50% cotton, 50% cruelty-free raw silk
  • Handwash cold
  • 71" L x 23.5" W (180 x 60 cm)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from Vietnam

January 4, 2015 - I bought this scarf in pink, and I love it! It is not too thick or heavy, so it can be worn with a lot of different outfits at different times of the year.

Artisan Diu

In Hanoi, Vietnam, where most people are raised to be farmers, there aren't a lot of vocational opportunities outside of agriculture. One stroke of bad luck can wipe out a year's worth of hard work -- drought or flood can destroy the year's crops, and the year's income. A lot of farmland is being purchased by developers of apartment buildings, leaving many farmers with no land, no vocational skills, and no source of income.

Craftbeauty is a fair trade craft organization that provides skills and a steady source of income to disadvantaged women who wouldn't otherwise have any options, including farming women, and women with disabilities. In Vietnam only about 15% of disabled persons receive training in vocational skills, and many end up unemployed and very poor. Craftbeauty offers these women (between the ages of 18 and 40 years old) a chance to learn about silk weaving, tailoring, embroidery, fashion, and quality control, and pays almost double the Vietnamese national livable wage. In addition to giving them a source of income, a skill set, and a safe workplace, these positions help the women retain their dignity, self worth, and confidence.
