This scarf is an all natural stunner. It's 100% undyed (completely natural) Madagascar silk, and is crafted from two different species of silk: 1) Wild Borocera Silk, which is only found in Madagascar. It's the "linen-y" color silk. 2) Cultivated Mulberry Silk which is the white silk. In both cases, the silk is the undyed natural color. It's soft, super lustrous, has gorgeous texture, and is naturally eye catching.
This scarf is completely hand-crafted: hand spun yarn 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 using techniques that have been passed down from mother-to-daughter for generations.
This 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 scarf 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.
