These scarves are from Sa Pa in the far North of Vietnam and we only have a few pieces available. Each piece took days of labour to produced and they are very special.
The craftswomen grow their own flax, wind their own yarn, and then lean over a tiny wooden loom for hours at a time to produce the cloth. The raw linen is quite stiff so would make a fantastic table runner. The pieces can be softened up with repeat hot washing to make a gorgeous unique scarf.
I have two different lengths available as well as one piece that is slightly wider & softer that I'll call 'light' in the variations. The light piece has also been hand-hemmed at one end. The lengths are approximately 1.1m and 1.8m.
I have one piece that has been marked with indigo dye by the craftswoman by accident (see photo). It's very, very minor and only shows on one side. This piece is marked down. It will be called 'indigo' in the variations.
Some pieces have fringing at one end and some don't. It is easy to add your own fringing and looks lovely on the scarf.
These scarves were purchased direct from the craftswomen who support their families and they are excellent negotiators - they knew what their handiwork was worth!
