the women behind our wheel

eco fashion scarves sustainability updates from Cambodia weavers

Today is International Women's Day so we wanted to take a moment to highlight some of the women at the core of our work: the weavers.

Most of our weavers are older women who work on personal looms under their homes (houses in the Cambodian countryside are built on stilts to protect families from the annual floods).  Stroke by stroke they weave with their hands while masterfully working foot pedals to guide the process along. It's truly mesmerizing watching them go, and the end results are of course stunning.  

Just as quality scarves are of utmost importance to our cause, so is the quality of the environment in which the women work. In a country with a large garment factory industry, we seek to keep production at the local community level to preserve a tradition and to ensure we respect the women with whom we work.  Working from home allows our women the ability to maintain the home and watch their children, both customs strong within their local villages.  For most, producing the scarves is their only source of income and your purchases empower them to become more self-sufficient while allowing them to work in a safe and familiar environment.  We are so proud of these women and their desire to transform their lives and provide more opportunities for their families. Here's to them and all women of the world who deserve the opportunity to reach their full potential.

In honor of this special day, we are offering free shipping today on all scarves in the scarf shop.

    I am from New Zealand would love to start a charity selling Kramas in New Zealand with the profits benefitting women in Cambodia and New Zealand. I can see you have ensured you are sourcing ethically produced Krama and wondered if I could buy in bulk directly from your Chairty?

    Kind Regards
