This elegant scarf is made from Eri Silk, a cruelty-free sustainable silk, and embellished with delicate Bhutanese motifs.
The Eri silk is hand-spun before being hand woven on a traditional back-strap loom. The colours are mindfully kept sober to imitate the ancient Bhutanese textiles before the introduction of chemical-dyed yarns in the Bhutan textiles scene.
The patterns on these scarves are the ones used in traditional scarves. These scarves are double-faced, meaning the motif is present and equally beautiful on both sides of the scarf. This can only be realized by a handful of weavers in Bhutan.

About the producer:
Colours of Bhutan is an eco-friendly, handmade textile company that started in the home of Wangchuk Lhamo in 2016. Wangchuk, a 30 years-old Bhutanese, third-generation weaver had a vision for sustainable textiles using only natural and renewable materials.
Her brand, Colours of Bhutan, creates contemporary textile products, using time-tested traditional methods. Working in harmony with Nature, they create their own natural dyes, from materials foraged from the forest, recycled from food waste and also grown in their garden. Their team of weavers work from the comfort of their homes and at their own pace. The designs are simple with delicate hand-stitched details giving them a modern, elevated feel.
The brand reflects and celebrates slow, sustainable living where social responsibility is not sacrificed for mass and fast production.
