Garment journey
  •  Provenance: Handwoven at Norlha Atelier on the Tibetan Plateau 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 6 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: Handspun and Handwoven
  •  Artisans & Processes: A team of 16 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.
