Handwoven Raw Silk Scarf - Silver
This beautiful scarf or stole has been handwoven by artisans in India. The artisans are part of a co-operative in semi rural area of North India. The co-operative was initiated in 1977 and is structured on a cottage industry basis. Most of the community in this area is involved in the scarf-making process – either weaving on looms, dying, tasselling, stitching, etc.
We source these scarves from a BAFTS registered and a recognised Fairtrade business in the UK. Chris’ story fascinated us as his passion for India began on his visit to a meditation center in Tamil Nadu, South India. Chris has been working with this co-operative movement since 2007 and more than anything shares a close bond and relationship with the people that goes beyond business deals, which is why we love to source from Chris as his values align with ours.
