This naturally textured scarf's simple pattern has a modern, minimalist look with a traditional feel. The softly luxurious, cream-colored fabric is punctuated with stripe-like lines of dark taupe triangles and stitches in an open, airy pattern. Low impact in every way but one—style—it's made from start to finish without pesticide, chemicals, or modern machines.
"Peace silk," also known as Eri, is made from vacant cocoons after the moths have emerged naturally. North Indian artisans hand-spin it, dye it with natural harda (an Ayervedic spice, then weave it by hand on traditional bamboo looms. Finished with a twisted fringe, the medium weight silk gives it year-round versatility. Handmade in India.
