This silk scarf is an all-natural work of art. It's 100% naturally dyed Madagascar silk, and is crafted from two different species of silk: 1) Cultivated Mulberry Silk which is the undyed white yarn. 2) Wild Borocera Silk, which is only found in Madagascar, makes up all the other colors in the scarf. The linen colored yarn is the undyed wild silk.
The warm, glowing colors shimmer in the sunlight, and are sure to catch the eye and capture your heart.
This piece is completely hand-crafted: hand spun yarn, and hand woven on a floor loom. The women of the Lovasoa Cooperative craft each piece in their small village in the central highlands of Madagascar.
This scarf contains 100% natural Madagascar silk. 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.
