Wrap yourself in cashmere! This oversized cashmere scarf is large enough to be worn as a wrap and is the perfect accessory for layering on cold evenings. It is made from Grade A Himalayan cashmere, making it extra soft against your skin. These unisex, timeless scarves make great gifts and carry a story you can feel good about!
All of the cashmere scarves and throws are hand-loomed in Pokhara Nepal by blind, deaf, or disabled weavers. A local non-profit organization provides them with the tools, training, and support necessary to become independent through weaving.
In Nepal, the disabled are discriminated against in mainstream society. They have little or no opportunities for work. Weaving allows them to enjoy an independent life, increases their self-esteem and also improves the way they are treated by their family.
The organization further gives back to the disabled community by donating white canes, hearing aids and wheel-chairs, providing food, medicine and essential goods for aged-care homes, helping the poor and distributing relief to earthquake and landslide victims. With such a great cause, these are our most favorite pieces!
