ABOUT THE PRODUCT
This scarf was woven on a handloom using Egyptian cotton and viscose. The process started by dyeing the cotton and viscose threads with natural colourful dyes, which were then spun around small handy wheels. This was followed by the lineup of the handloom threads into a geometric pattern. Egypt has a rich history of textile crafts, and this scarf represents the fusion of history and fair trade.
