Edition 038. Manly Silk Scarves.

Looking forward to spring, we set out procuring khadi; a hand-spun and hand-woven fabric that only comes from India. We were enamored by the beauty and utter softness of this rare material.

While working with a producer who helps bring this amazing fabric to the rest of the world, she threw a manly silk scarf made in the traditional khadi way across the table. We asked her if we could make them even thicker and chunkier. She didn’t see why not and we set off to make a scarf that reminded us of vintage European motorbike touring. We had them woven with a generous length for those that have no tolerance for an icy breeze creeping down their neck. Get it now in cocoahunter and royal blue.
