This stunning blue scarf is hand-woven from wild Borocera silk, a species of silk only found in Madagascar. It's name 'paradisa' translates to 'paradise' in Madagascar, as the blue of oceans and skies will carry you away. There is a subtle stripe that adds interest, a lighter tone and slightly darker tone of blue.
It is 100% Madagascar silk and is handmade using traditional weaving methods that have been passed down from mother-to-daughter for generations. The women of the Lovasoa Cooperative carefully craft each piece in their small village in the central highlands of Madagascar.
