Soft, luxurious, and with excellent drape, this felted silk and wool scarf is a signature product for women artisans in the Kathmandu Valley area of Nepal who collaborated with The Red Sari Company to create a unique product that successfully fuses contemporary design and traditional handicraft techniques.
Wool fibers are fused with pieces of vintage tissue silk saris that would otherwise be discarded. The result is a beautifully textured, unique scarf. The slightly scalloped edges are finished with stitching to secure the fibers and to give a firm border. The scarf may be spot cleaned with soap and water, then reshaped and dried flat.
The Red Sari is a socially responsible fashion design company with a mission to create sustainable jobs for women in Nepal while being environmentally aware.
