These scarves are dreamily light. ?They are created from 50% *cruelty-free silk and 50% cotton. ?The sheen is lovely and the drape is very feminine. ?Wear this gorgeous scarf knowing that you are helping women in Vietnam.

*Silk is collected from cocoons whose moth inhabitants have already begun to emerge, with small holes being cut to enable the moths to emerge without having eaten through too much of the cocoon. The moths live and the workers collect the empty cocoons for use in spinning raw silk fiber.

Who your purchase helps:

Artisans: These scarves are created by a?fair trade craft organization in Hanoi, Vietnam, that provides skills and a steady source of income to disadvantaged women who wouldn’t otherwise have any options, including farming women, and women with disabilities. In Vietnam only about 15% of disabled persons receive training in vocational skills, and many end up unemployed and very poor. The women?(between the ages of 18 and 40 years old) are offered a chance to learn about silk weaving, tailoring, embroidery, fashion, and quality control, and are paid?almost double the Vietnamese national livable wage. In addition to giving them a source of income, a skill set, and a safe workplace, these positions help the women retain their dignity, self worth, and confidence.

US employees: Our shipping department is staffed entirely by women who are in need in the US, women who have had to escape violent situations in their homes. ?These women have children who are also benefitting from their mothers being able to care for them while working.
