Made by a women's owned and staffed fair trade business in Kathmandu, these vibrant scarves are sure to be a new wardrobe staple! These beautiful pieces are made from retired saris worn by women in the Himalayas.

The original 8 meter long saris worn for celebrations had slight imperfections caused by trampled hemlines from many journeys, tears from children clinging, and holes from unexpected occurrences. These saris were collected by women who washed, sorted, inspected and then recut, sewed and ironed the material into new infinity scarves to be worn by you.

Although we can not guarantee the exact fibre content of the scarves given that they are recycled textiles, we can guarantee that the fabrics are soft and fall nicely. Many are silk.  

Every time you wrap yourself in one of these 'sister scarves', you will be connected to the beautiful energy of every sister involved in its history. Didi Bahini is proud to create this beautiful sisterhood of support through their fair trade business, and invite you to join them. Wrap yourself in your new beautiful scarf and help empower the women of Nepal through your purchase.
