This piece is completely hand-crafted: hand spun yarn, and hand woven on a floor loom. The women of the Lovasoa Cooperative craft each piece in their small village in the central highlands of Madagascar.
This scarf contains 100% natural Madagascar silk. This beautiful piece will last a lifetime.
Your purchase directly helps a weaver in this cooperative support her family. It also preserves the cultural tradition of silk weaving in Madagascar.
Each piece comes with a lovely tag that tells the story of the silk and has washing instructions.
Washing instructions: Hand-wash with any kind of soap. Lay flat to dry. Iron while still damp to give it a lovely sheen. Separately, you can steam iron it on a low-ish setting to refresh it from time to time without washing. This gives it a lovely sheen. Dry cleaning is also fine.
