This lustrous silk scarf is sure to catch your eye, and everyone else's.   This stunner is naturally dyed with Madagascar saffron root, and it shimmers in the sunlight.   

It is 100% Madagascar silk and completely hand-crafted (hand spun yarn, naturally dyed, and hand woven on a floor loom).  The women of the Solidarity Cooperative craft each piece in their small village in the central highlands of Madagascar. 

This scarf is made from wild Borocera silk which is a species of silkworm only found in Madagascar.   

Only natural dyes are used in this scarf.  The dye is fixed and will not run or fade.  This beautiful piece will last a lifetime.  

Your purchase directly helps a weaver in our cooperative support her family.  It also preserves the cultural tradition of silk weaving in Madagascar.

Each piece comes with a lovely tag that tells the story of the silk and has washing instructions.

Washing instructions: Hand-wash with any kind of soap.  Lay flat to dry.  Iron while still damp to give it a lovely sheen. Separately, you can steam iron it on a low-ish setting to refresh it from time to time without washing.  This also gives it a lovely sheen.
