Color Block Silk Scarf
Beautifully handwoven raw silk is a great fall/winter weight with all the luxury silk offers. Handwoven by women at CraftBeauty, an all-women artisan organization aimed at helping rural women earn a regular monthly salary to support themselves and their families. Working with a variety of fabrics in their native Vietnam, the artisans of Craftbeauty have managed to create opportunity where before prospects looked grim. Originally rice farmers living in a small cultivated area subject to the whims of weather, their farmland began vanishing to a new threat - development of apartment housing. They have a workshop where women can come together to work, but also have opportunities for women to craft from home. Now these women earn more than three times what they made farming rice, which makes them the primary source of income in their village and allows them to provide a better future for themselves and their families.
