Each of these fair trade silk scarves is a little bit unique. It’s lightweight, flowing, and positively dreamy to wear. The contemporary abstract square design has been created through the traditional art of hand batik, whereby layers of wax are used during the hand dying process to keep the colours distinct. This is a skill handed down through generations of rural Indian artisans.
By wearing this this fair trade scarf you’re making a statement about ethical fashion, about supporting handmade goodness, and about putting people above mass consumerism. Each scarf is a piece of original art, and is a little antidote to fast fashion, made with love in small batches.
