ABOUT THE ARTISANS
This scarf was handmade in a fair trade cooperative in Ecuador. The indigenous artisans use age-old, traditional weaving techniques combined with contemporary styles and colors, to create gorgeous products for a Western marketplace. The scarves are handwoven on a wooden loom using methods that have been employed for hundreds of years. The artisans are paid excellent wages, and have seen their lives greatly improved through fair trade practices.
