This beauty was inspired from wild, deep blue African skies - specifically the wide open sky in Madagascar. This scarf's earthy yet modern look make it an easy favorite.
It is 100% Madagascar silk and completely hand crafted - hand spun yarn, hand dyed, and hand woven on a floor loom. The women of the Lovasoa Cooperative carefully craft each piece in their small village in the central highlands of Madagascar.
This scarf contains two different species of silk: 1) Wild Borocera silk which is only found in Madagascar. The "linen" colored yarn is natural undyed Borocera silk and the blue yarn is dyed Borocera silk. 2) Cultivated Mulberry silk. The cultivated Mulberry silk is the white yarn, which is its undyed natural color.
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: We recommend dry cleaning as this scarf is dyed with acid dyes.
