Description

Raw silk scarf very comforting!

100% raw silk scarf, Artisans Angkor, spun and woven by hand, fair trade and eco-friendly. According to the method of preparation of this raw silk in particular, it was cleaned more thoroughly making this raw silk softer. Solid color with patterns tone on tone in the weaving.

The finish along the length of the scarf is the edge of the fabric (as opposed to a hem), which implies that the craftswoman is only weaving one scarf at a time on the loom. This scarf has fringes across the width.

Raw silk is more rustic in appearance, with very pronounced grains, but still with the luster, shimmer of colors and softness that characterizes silk. Natural raw silk is thicker than fine silk and its texture is incomparable. The raw silk that we offer you is opaque which means that the number of silkworm cocoons to create a thread is higher.

Silk is a natural and renewable material, biodegradable and less polluting to produce (source: Guide du vêtement responsable - 2008, Équiterre). In addition, it is fair trade because it is handmade according to an ancestral know-how by the artisans of a cooperative, and among them, have social policy and decent working conditions.

Additionally, natural or dyes that don't contain heavy metals are used; they are less damaging to artisans and the environment and therefore eco-friendly while promoting sustainable development.

Over the years, Artisans Angkor has become a showcase of Cambodian craftsmanship for its silks worthy of the Silk Road!

Artisans Angkor has pioneered a new social policy in Cambodia, guaranteeing a fair income as well as social and medical welfare to all its employees. The artisans themselves formed an association that holds a 20-percent share in the company.

A workshop opening means more employment in disadvantaged rural communities and therefore an improvement of social conditions and poverty alleviation.
