Designed and handcrafted by heritage artisans in India using an ancient tie-and-dye resist technique called Bandhani.
Made from handwoven Peace Silk (non-violent silk). The silk moths are allowed to hatch out of their cocoon and live out a full, natural lifecycle. As a result of the cocoon hatch, the fiber is broken into shorter pieces and then handspun into yarn.

Each scarf bears the signature of the individual bandhani artisan’s handiwork. Your item will inevitably vary some from the picture.
Do expect variation in texture and color in the textile- a testament to a more natural and humane process.
All naturally dyed items will fade and patina over time. When the scarf is still new, avoid wearing next to light colored items as sometimes the color can rub off. These are traits inherent to textiles dyed with plants and should be embraced.
