Our take on the timeless polka dot - charcoal hand-printed dots and strips laid on lusciously soft and gauzy natural cotton. Wear it all year around for comfort.
TECHNIQUE: HAND BLOCK-PRINTING
This scarf was made using a traditional block-printing process. Wooden blocks are carefully prepared by master carvers, which are then dipped in dye and stamped onto the fabric. Each color/pattern combination requires a block and each scarf may need several block-prints to achieve the final design. Every step of the process from the design sketch, to the carving of the wooden blocks, to dye-mixing, to block-printing, to washing & drying, has been done entirely by hand, respecting a tradition that dates back thousands of years. The scarf is made in small batches in a women-owned factory.
Size (approximate): 27 in. x 82 in. Material: 100% Natural Cotton Hand wash cold, line dry. Iron on low if desired.
Why we think this partner is GREATER: Bloom & Give donates 50% of their profits to programs that send girls to school in India. In developing countries like India, education is the most effective way for a girl to escape the cycle of childhood marriage, pre-teen pregnancy and abuse. A middle-school educated girl will marry 4 years later, have 2 fewer children, and double her income. Educated women make their communities more tolerant and open-minded, and the world needs them now, more than ever! Bloom & Give funds two different programs.
