Most importantly, they also come with a poignant, empowering story that you can feel good about:
Our 100% cashmere scarves are handmade in Nepal by local residents who are blind, deaf, or otherwise disabled. Nepalese society has discriminated against the handicapped, leaving them little or no opportunities for work. Weaving gives these women and men a sense of independence and self-esteem, and your purchase gives their families some much-needed financial support that's very hard to come by in these communities.
Nepal/Tibetan Himalayan cashmere is renowned as some of the softest cashmere in the world. Cashmere is extremely light and luxuriously soft yet keeps you extremely warm. Cashmere comes from the softest undercoat of a goat and it takes an average of three goats wool to make one scarf!
Along with providing help to dedicated Nepalese craftspeople with few other options, your purchase also helps support Ocean Conservancy: working to bring people, science and policy together with a mission to counter the many threats to ocean health and sustainability. From protecting vital, vulnerable ecosystems through legislation, to enforcing accountability among leaders, Ocean Conservancy seeks solutions for a healthy ocean and the wildlife and communities that depend on it.
