QUALITY SCARVES SUSTAINABLY MADE

Materials

We work with natural materials. This means that there are no synthetic fibers in the products that we offer. Working with natural materials is important to us because of quality. Natural materials are better quality, are much warmer and last longer than their alternatives. We also believe that less is more. Fewer quality pieces are better for our planet.

Our scarves are made out of the following materials:

Cotton

cotton-sustainable-material-scarves

Cotton is sustainable, renewable, and biodegradable, making it an environmentally friendly fiber throughout its entire product life cycle.

Our cotton comes from several different areas in South Asia. Some of our cotton fabrics are hand loomed; this requires no energy to make - besides the energy and expertise of our master weavers. By choosing handloom fabrics over machine-milled fabric, we’ve reduced the carbon footprint in the products by 30%. This choice also employs nine times as many people.

Care: Fold to store.

Cleaning Instructions: Hand wash cold.

 

Linen

Linen comes from the stems of the flax plant. One of the strongest natural fibres, Linen has a non-allergic feature that makes the best microclimate for skin.

Our linen comes from India where the flax plant has been grown for centuries. The locals use linen since is the most suitable fabric in hot summer climate because of its cooling and refreshing effect.

Some of our linen fabrics are hand loomed; this requires no energy to make - besides the energy and expertise of our master weavers. By choosing handloom fabrics over machine-milled fabric, we’ve reduced the carbon footprint in the products by 30%. This choice also employs nine times as many people.

Cashmere

Cashmere is roughly eight times warmer than sheep’s wool. Herders in Nepal and Kashmir have been making cashmere shawls for literally thousands of years

Coming from both Scotland and Nepal, two countries with a long history of supplying the world's highest grade of cashmere.

Scotland cashmere is thick and fluffy. Long and fine fibers are used, ensuring unparalleled softness and longevity.

Our Cashgora cashmere comes from Nepal, a crossbreed of Cashmere and Angora (Mohair) goats. The natural white of Mohair and the softness of Cashmere blends into a warm and durable Cashgora. 

Care: Fold to store.

Cleaning Instructions: Hand wash cold, lay flat to dry.

 

Wool

wool-fiber-scarves-sustainable

Wool is sustainable, a renewable resource that can be shorn from sheep annually. It is biodegradable and kinder to the environment than oil-based synthetics, which contribute to global pollution.

Lambs wool

Soft, elastic, and smooth, lambs wool makes a softer blend of wool. Grown and weaved in Scotland, this material is warm and made to last.

Fine Wool

From the mountains of Kashmir comes very soft lightweight wool. Warm like cashmere, yet weaved into a delicate fabric, fine wool makes a perfect transitional piece.

Alpaca and Baby Alpaca

The incredibly soft fibers come from using only the finest, hand-combed baby alpaca fibers. Harvested from adult alpaca (contrary to the name) in Peru. Alpaca wool is warmer than sheep’s wool, yet lighter in weight.

Care: Fold to store.

Cleaning Instructions: Hand wash in cold.

 

Silk

raw-silk-natural-material

Silk production hasn't changed for 5,000 years. Despite its impressive history, the fundamental process has remained relatively the same since the first discovery of how to rear silk worms and use looms for spinning.

Silk shimmers because silk fibers naturally refract light. Due to its composition of triangular-like prisms and structure of the fibers, silk naturally reflects light from many different angles.

Our silk has a shinny butter finish on one side and matte on the reverse. Our silk comes from India, the largest consumer of silk, which is ingrained in their history, culture and traditions. The luxurious silk is made from some of the finest weavers in the world.

Cleaning Instructions: Hand-wash cold.

 

Modal

beech-tree-modal-material

Modal is a type of rayon fabric made from fibers of the beech tree. The term rayon applies to fabric/fiber made of the wood pulp from any tree. Modal uses only beech wood. It is not listed as a totally natural fiber because the wood pulp from the tree is processed. Modal is classified as a bio-based textile.

 

Modal fabric is very soft. It is cool to the touch and very absorbent. It takes and holds dye easily.

Modal is less resistant to shrinkage than cotton and tends to pill less as a result of friction on the surface.

Care: Fold to store

Cleaning instruction: Hand wash cold.
