South African Handwoven Mohair Scarf

Item # 36424
No longer available

As beautiful as it is cozy, this wonderfully wearable accessory lends rich color and lightweight texture season to season. And, by simply looking fabulous and staying cozy you're also helping improve the lives of impoverished women in South Africa...and what could be better than that?

Made by the women of Shuttleworth Weavers in the KwaZulu Natal region of South Africa, where weaving provides vital income for the women in an area with very few employment opportunities. Nearly all of the Zulu women employed at Shuttleworth are single mothers with large extended families who rely heavily on their wages, especially now that the AIDS epidemic has claimed so many lives. Many of them have taken in orphaned children family members. Shuttleworth uses only environmentally friendly natural fibers to develop their special handspun yarns.

  • Chocolate, Periwinkle or Cranberry
  • Made of mohair harmlessly obtained from Angora goats
  • 5.25' L x 6.5" W (160 x 16.5 cm)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from South Africa
