An incredibly special piece, super soft and hand woven by women from the Himalayan Valley as part of a project set up to end poverty through the creation of employment, enabling steady incomes to be earned & investment in their children's education.
Part of their mission is preserve their cultures and skills whilst gaining exposure from the world around them. They honour these guiding principles equally and without compromise.
The wool to make these scarves is ethically sourced, from yaks raised by nomadic herders and local shepherds on the Himalayan Plateau.
