Wrap yourself in cashmere! This oversized Blush Handloom Cashmere Scarf is large enough to be worn as a wrap and is the perfect accessory for layering on cold evenings. It is made from Grade A Himalayan cashmere, making it extra soft against your skin. This unisex, timeless scarf makes great gifts and carries a story you can feel good about! Sustainably and ethically HANDMADE in Nepal.
Nepal/Tibetan Himalayan cashmere is renowned as some of the softest cashmere in the world. Cashmere is extremely light and luxuriously soft yet keeps you extremely warm. Cashmere comes from the softest undercoat of a goat and it takes an average of three goats wool to make one scarf!
All cashmere scarves and throws are hand-loomed in Pokhara Nepal by blind, deaf, or disabled weavers. In Nepal, the disabled are discriminated against in mainstream society. They have little or no opportunities for work. Weaving allows them to enjoy an independent life, increases their self-esteem, and also improves the way they are treated by their family.
This product is made by SLATE + SALT, a brand dedicated to bringing a curated collection of modern, one-of-a-kind pieces while preserving traditional techniques and supporting the Fair Trade movement. They work closely with small social enterprises to facilitate dignified working opportunities in areas of extreme poverty giving a positive impact for rural artisans in underdeveloped nations to support their families and continue to live in their own communities.
Fairtrade restores dignity to the artisans and assists women to become role models to their communities. Economic empowerment gives them the opportunity to stay in their villages and they will be less likely to migrate to urban areas.
