"Made by a woman-owned and staffed fair trade business in Kathmandu, these vibrant scarves are made from retired saris worn by our sisters in the Himalayas. The original 8 meter long saris worn for celebrations had slight imperfections caused by trampled hemlines from many journeys, tears from children clinging, and holes from everyday wear. 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 coloured fabrics and soft texture.

Every time you wrap yourself in one of these 'sister scarves', you will be connected to the beautiful energy of every sister involved in its history. Wrap yourself in these beautiful scarves and help us empower the women of Nepal through business.

Scarves measure 54" long

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."
