Golden Sands Scarf
This elegant scarf was inspired by the golden sand of the beach. Handwoven using the traditional backstrap loom, the scarf has textured stripes and checkers going horizontally to give the scarf depth, as well as vertical stripes. The background is a rich sand color and is accented by a soft gold-toned cream. This scarf is super soft and is made from a rayon cotton blend. It's perfect year-round!
Measurements: Approximately 8 1/2" wide by 70" long.
This fair trade scarf was created by La Estrella, a group of eight Kaqchiquel Mayan weavers from the rural community of ChuaCruz, Guatemala. The artisan group was formed in the early 1980's in order to support the widows who lost their husbands during the Civil War. They work on backstrap & foot looms. With the purchase of this item, you are helping the women in this cooperative to support their families.
