Cotton & silk organza scarf from Kyrgyzstan measuring approximately 62" wide x 78" long. This organza scarf is the perfect "go to" for your casual every day needs. Ends are finished with a seam and hand strung with small beads. Sides are frayed edge. They will soon become your favorite pop of color as the size makes them work well for a shawl, but the fabric thin enough a quick wrap around the neck is also incredibly stylish. They are made by the team of Rahima and Zuchra. Rahima is a seamstress with 3 grown sons. Her husband is slightly mentally disabled and spends his days watching their sheep and animals. Zuchra has 5 children, including two sets of twins. Her husband is not reliable enough to support them, so she has learned to bead and crochet to feed her young children.
Gave this beautiful scarf as an early holiday gift. The recipient LOVES it. Rich color, silky fabric, festive beads, fair trade, good karma, great staff . . . what's not to love?
