A Story Behind Every Scarf

September 17, 2017

A recent BBC report named the scarf a must-have accessory that’s a new “power symbol” for women in business. Much like men’s ties, the versatile scarf can become a statement piece in contrast to more professional attire, for those who work in office settings.
It’s not lost on us how well scarves can dress up an outfit for a day at your desk or conference room, but then transitions well for a night out. It fits in perfectly at dinner and drinks with a simple change in how it’s wrapped.

What we love even more: this all-purpose accessory has another “power” — to lift up women in the global economy. Weaving, dyeing, and production of fairly traded scarves build businesses for women in Guatemala, sustain livelihoods in India, and provide income-generating opportunities in Nepal.
Add a few new handmade pieces to your wardrobe, in a range of striking colors and beautiful patterns.
