All colors straight from nature
This wide scarf/rainbow shawl can at least be called original.
Yellow, green, blue, red and soft pink colors this wide scarf.
All these colors come directly from nature.
Indigo plants, tree bark, wood and fruits were used to give the yarn its color.
Our weavers dye their yarns in the traditional way.
They learned from their (grand)mother how to get the most beautiful colors from plants.

For decades, peasant women have used the hot dry season to weave their fabrics.
Because the fields of Sakon Nakhon only produce crops once a year, this part of Thailand is a relatively poor region.
The income from weaving is therefore important.
The weavers took all the time to make this beautiful rainbow shawl.
It took two to three days to finish.
Dyeing, weaving, everything was done in a sustainable way.
Strong, soft, handmade and a good cause
The fabric feels very fine and soft, one of the characteristics of rayon, the material from which it was made.
The scarf was woven by the elderly, disabled and farmers who could really use your support.
It only increases your appreciation for this fine piece of craftsmanship.
This special scarf will not only look great on you, you will also enjoy wearing it for years to come.
