100% cashmere scarves are handmade by blind, deaf, and disabled weavers in Nepal. Your purchase of these scarves helps to support the families of these men and women who are disabled. Nepalese society has discriminated against the handicapped, leaving them little or no opportunities for work. Weaving gives them an independent life and self-esteem.
Cashmere comes from the softest undercoat of a goat and it takes an average of three goats to make one scarf. These are not cashmere blended scarves, they are 100% hand-loomed cashmere made on traditional looms.
