ethical scarvesWe’ve created our beautiful, ethical scarves by hand, from the spinning of the cotton to the hand printing of our unique designs.  This means that each one is a little different – you can see where the weaver tied their next thread or when the printer applied more colour to their block.  This is the beauty of the cloth – it tells a story.

Our scarves are traceable too, they come with a code on the label so you can explore their creation journey, right back to the cotton farm.

ethical scarves wheredoesitcomefrom.co.uk Scarves are the most versatile accessory you’ll find.  Any outfit can be uplifted by a beautiful scarf and there are an infinite number of ways to tie it.  There’s no age limit – anyone can adapt their scarf to their own style.  Plus you can keep your scarf for ever – you’ll never grow out of it.

Our ethical scarves are large, approximately 2 metres long and 45 cm wide.  They can be a summer evening wrap – the perfect bring along for holidays and festivals – or in cooler weather they bring warmth with style.

Our scarves make a lovely gift too. For birthday, Christmas, Valentines day, Mother’s day or just for the heck of it, you can choose a colour or design that will strike a personal chord and give joy.  They’re often bought for new Mums who can first use them as a modesty accessory when breastfeeding and then wear them with happy memories forever after.

Creating our Ethical Scarves

Our ethical scarves are made from khadi.  Khadi is a soft, fine cotton fabric made famous by Mahatma Ghandi.  Ghandi encouraged rural Indian people to hand spin and weave their own cotton as part of his quest for a free India.  We work with social enterprises and co-operatives in India, keeping in touch every step of the way, and each scarf comes with a code on the label so you can discover who made it and how this work effects their life and the planet we live on.

Our brooches and hair accessories are hand made using off-cuts from our denim childrens’ clothes collection. There are only a few of these left now so snap them up while you can!
