This large, hand woven, fair trade, silk scarf is produced by a women's co-operative in Eastern Thailand. The scarf is woven in panels of three colours. The central panel is a chocolate brown which changes to a rich gold, then a pretty minky beige. The scarf is finished with a brown fringe.
This silk scarf has an attractive sheen and the interplay of thread and colour gives delicate tonal changes. The artisan group which makes these pure silk scarves, like the group which produces the hand painted silk and cotton mix scarves shown elsewhere on the KIENA website, is recognized locally for the superior quality of the items it produces. The villagers undertake the entire production process; they feed the silk worms the mulberry leaves; collect the cocoons; unravel the silk thread; dye the silk; create the designs and hand weave the textiles.
