Square Scarf in Ivory Plaid
A square scarf with endless possibilities: wear it around your neck, on your head, tied to a bag — anything goes. I wasn't originally intending on making scarves for the collection, but after spending all this summer and fall working with our FW16 fabrics, I couldn't stop thinking how great of scarves they would make. I love using these scarves to pattern mix with other fabrics in the collection — the Ivory Plaid pattern goes especially well with our Dusty Rose silk.

This skirt is made of handloom fabric woven by hand in India. Handloom was the way basically all fabric was made from the dawn of time until the invention of electricity and modern milling techniques; it requires a high level of skill and craftsmanship, using the same techniques that were used centuries ago. The handloom process uses zero electricity, and the industry employs many skilled workers in rural areas of India where other jobs are scarce, making handloom super sustainable in addition to being breathtakingly beautiful. (Read more about handloom on our blog here.)
This particular fabric is a blend of khadi (i.e., hand-spun) cotton and just a little bit of tussar (i.e., wild) silk. It's soft and gauzy, warm and breathable, rustic and refined, all at the same time. The fabric is ivory-colored and has stripes of black, blue, grey, green, and tan; it pairs well with black, light and dark denims, and our Mulberry Twill fabric.
In addition to the fabric, this scarf uses 100% organic cotton thread and organic cotton labels.
