These vibrant scarves are made from retired saris worn by our sisters in the Himalayas. The original eight-meter-long saris worn for celebrations had slight imperfections caused by trampled hemlines, tears from clinging children and holes from unexpected accidents. These saris are collected by other sisters who wash, sort, inspect and then recut, sew and iron into new infinity scarves to be worn by our North American "sisters" who appreciate the richly colored fabrics and soft texture.
Made by a Fair Trade business in Kathmandu owned and staffed by women business in Kathmandu, every scarf is different and carries with it the legacy of the sisters who have worn, sorted and repurposed the saris to have another life as a beautiful fashion accessory. Every time you wrap yourself in one of our SISTER SCARVES, you will be connected to the beautiful energy of every sister involved in its history. We are proud to create this beautiful sisterhood of support through our fair trade business. Join us. Wrap yourself in these beautiful scarves and help us empower the women of Nepal through business. Their beauty and our mission is empowering!
You can purchase the scarves by color, letting us know how many of each you would like. Individually photographing each scarf is impossible, but we are happy to connect by Zoom or Skype to show you some patterns. Just send an email or call 250-585-5509.
Although we can not guarantee the exact fibre content of our scarves given they are recycled textiles, we can guarantee that the fabrics are soft and fall nicely. Many are silk.
