Silk Island Widow’s Weaving Collective // Cambodia
Chanda Silk Scarf
Why we love it
Much like the Cambodian artisans who weave them, the Chanda Silk Scarves are warm and gentle. Soft to touch and light to layer, these gorgeous scarves can accompany any outfit from day to night, all the while inspiring thoughts of wanderlust and vacation chic. Silk is considered a magical insulator, helping to shepherd in transformation in one’s life.
Meet our artisans
The Chanda Silk Blend Scarf is handwoven by the Silk Island Widow's Weaving Collective on Silk Island, Cambodia. Silk Island is home to a silk weaving village and silk center, where the entire silk production process can be witnessed. Mulberry-eating silkworms in golden cocoons are carefully raised before their silk threads are spun and woven into stunning kramas (traditional silk scarves) and other items. The main silk weaving center on the island is home to a collection of beautifully constructed homes where weavers patiently weave their looms, creating simple but finely crafted silk wares. The farm employs a number of widows who can live in the homes and support their families, while raising children.
