Striped Scarf

737 NIS
Colour: Black and Natural Grey
Description

This scarf is made from a fine yak khullu and silk blend. It features horizontal bands in natural grey khullu and hand-sewn rolled edges. Its design is incredibly laborious to create, with the thread preparation alone taking several days. As its name suggests, this scarf is as light as a feather, with a unique blend of warmth and delicacy.

WORDS FROM THE WEAVER

' I felt each stripe of this scarf. Usually, I fall into a rhythm when weaving. My hands and feet know what to do; I can mutter prayers while my mind wanders in and out of a whole world of imagination. But this piece has been a test of my concentration. Each stripe demands my undivided attention, challenging me, making me feel like I have completed an arduous journey when the task is complete! ' – Rinchen Tso

Garment journey
  •  Provenance: Handwoven at Norlha Atelier using yak khullu sourced from local nomad cooperatives
  •  Base colour: Yaks typically have a dark brown coat, but they can also be found in grey and, very rarely, in golden brown and white. Our artisans work with all four yak wool shades, which are either left in their natural state, combined to create different tones, or dyed.
  •  Yak khullu: This scarf was made using the khullu of 1 yak. Khullu is the ultra-fine, downy undercoat that keeps yak insulated during harsh Tibetan winters. Each summer, the yak naturally shed this down, which is then carefully collected by hand.
  •  Technique: Handwoven
  •  Artisans & Processes: A team of 12 artisans handmade this scarf at Norlha Atelier. During its production, it went through 14 highly specialised processes.
  •  Shipping: All orders are packed with care and shipped from our atelier on the Tibetan Plateau.
