Chenille Bamboo Scarves

Gift Wrapping:
Options available

You'd expect scarves made of bamboo to be stiff and scratchy, right?  Not at all, and these soft and smooth scarves prove it.  Hand dyed in gorgeous color combinations and handmade by a Mayan women's co-op in Guatemala using their traditional chenille weaving methods.  

62" long x 3.5" wide.

PLEASE NOTE: The Amethyst color scarf is 60" long x 6" wide and has fringe only at the ends. 

Hand wash or dry clean. 

In the mid-1980's, Guatemala was in the midst of a brutal civil war between the indigenous Mayans and the government. Thousands died in the fighting. Mayan women were widowed and left to scrape together a living for their families.

In Solala, a small town near beautiful Lake Atitlan, a group of these widows decided to create a weaving co-operative as a way not only of supporting their children but also to preserve their traditional weaving methods and their Mayan language.

Today, the daughters of these women run the co-op. They continue to use traditional Mayan weaving techniques to create their beautiful bamboo scarves. Your purchase helps them to maintain the co-op and market their products on a broader basis.
