LIGHT AS AIR
From : Kathmandu, Nepal //
Aptly named Vayu (which means air in Hindi), we are happy to announce our new ultra light cashmere scarf. It is hand woven to order in Nepal with over 2000 cashmere strands from Inner Mongolia. I’ve never seen such intricate weaving and love its translucency and flow.
As if this wasn’t enough of a feat, we decided to take it further. These beauties are part of our Natural Color Initiative. The goal: Revive this region’s rich natural dyeing tradition which has been passed down through the generations, but now is in serious decline. To this end, we worked with Master Colorist Rakesh to reopen his natural dyeing facilities (which had closed 4 years prior due to lack of demand) and the results are spectacular. Natural dyes provide a much richer tone than their chemical imitators and he can create anything from striking red to jet black to intense indigo.
For a limited time, we are offering the opportunity to make your own custom colored scarf which is hand tinted using natural dyes made of herbs, plants, nuts, fruits, etc.
Create your very own VAYU CUSTOM CASHMERE SCARF.
