We realize more and more how much the environment suffers from the fast fashion industry.
Fast fashion is associated with poor working conditions and low wages for the makers of the clothing, environmental pollution and waste.
Fortunately, there are plenty of ‘slow fashion’ alternatives.
And we are one of them.
You can also buy sustainable clothing at The Happy Scarf.
Our scarves are not woven by polluting machines, but by hand.

In the beginning, we didn’t understand much about the looms we encountered during our purchasing trips.
At the time, we were mainly concerned with the beautiful fabrics that rolled out.
Still, we wanted to better understand how our handwoven scarves are made.

Many visits to our weavers later, we understand better how it works.
It has only increased our appreciation for this special piece of craftsmanship.
We are happy to tell you what we know.
