Madeira Natural Cotton Scarf

$50.00

A contemporary hand block-printed stripe motif on a light and airy cotton, this is a scarf for all seasons and occasions.

TECHNIQUE: HAND BLOCK-PRINTING

This scarf was made using a traditional block-printing process. Wooden blocks are carefully prepared by master carvers, which are then dipped in dye and stamped onto the fabric. Each color/pattern combination requires a block and each scarf may need several block-prints to achieve the final design. Every step of the process from the design sketch, to the carving of the wooden blocks, to dye-mixing, to block-printing, to washing & drying, has been done entirely by hand, respecting a tradition that dates back thousands of years. The scarf is made in small batches in a women-owned factory.

Size (approximate): 27 in. x 82 in.
Material: 100% Natural Cotton
Hand wash cold, line dry. Iron on low if desired.

Why we think this partner is GREATER: Bloom & Give donates 50% of their profits to programs that send girls to school in India.  In developing countries like India, education is the most effective way for a girl to escape the cycle of childhood marriage, pre-teen pregnancy and abuse.  A middle-school educated girl will marry 4 years later, have 2 fewer children, and double her income.  Educated women make their communities more tolerant and open-minded, and the world needs them now, more than ever!  Bloom & Give funds two different programs.  Check them out here: https://www.bloomandgive.com/pages/how-we-give
