This ruby red silk scarf was created through a special design collaboration between Peace Goods and Kiran Badola of Mountain Handicrafts. It's rich red color is complimented by soft rose and golden orange accents. These colors are used in subtle warp and weft striping throughout. It's an earthy beauty with a timeless quality.
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 Lovasoa 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 in cool water 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.
