The cream color of this gauze scarf is made from a natural dye derived from coconut coir (husks). It is traditionally hand-loomed and texture is added with a delicate stripe pattern. This scarf is light and airy, but also large enough to be used as a wrap so it makes the perfect travel accessory!
Located in rural Takeo Province, Cambodia is a sustainable weaving cooperative who believe that social entrepreneurship empowers people and the community. They identify aspiring entrepreneurs and invest in them by sharing knowledge through mentorship and training and provide interest free seed capital to help establish sustainable micro businesses. The successful entrepreneurs then become the catalyst of change by becoming mentors themselves and inspiring other community members. Entrepreneurs take responsibility for their future, help alleviate poverty and improve the life of their families and community. This creates a ripple effect of sustainable, scalable positive impact, one village at a time.
