Description

This lightweight scarf is made from a yak khullu and silk blend. The balance between the scarf’s fibres gives it a naturally crinkled texture. It features two vertical lines of exposed khullu in the weft, created by leaving a blank space in the silk warp while weaving.

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.
