Yoyo Silk Bud Scarves
Yoyo Silk Bud Scarves
YoYo Silk Bud Scarves are individually hand made from silk fabric that has been hand woven and intended for traditional festive and formal Thai clothing. Excess, unused fabric is repurposed to make the silk buds.
Thai silk is world famous for its beauty, unique lustre, and exceptional craftsmanship.
Likewise, each scarf is completely unique, consisting of numerous, small "flower buds" of varying colors and patterns but which all complement each other.
Each Yoyo scarf measures 82" x 3.5".
Amazingly Perfect Little Yo-Yos

This narrow scarf made with tiny yo-yos of fabric from Thailand is more beautiful than even in the picture. The fabric is high quality raw silk and the "spice" one that I ordered has lots of hot pinks, golds, purples, blues and is amazing. I ordered on an early Saturday morning and received it on the following Monday! Great shipping! I have seen other scarves and quilts made from scrap fabric from India and Thailand and it's exciting to think part of the money made from the sale of these items will go to the villages to help the children with healthcare and education. I'll definitely order another scarf when the "pastel" colors are in stock!
Unique and Beautiful

I love the interesting look of this scarf, and the colors go with everything I wear.
This silk scarf is produced by the Ban Napho Weaving Group, a women’s cooperative in Isan, eastern Thailand. The group, which produces the most spectacular silk fabrics, is consistently recognized and featured in Thai Government sponsored programs that support rural enterprises. The villagers routinely experiment with dyeing techniques and weaving methods to create unique, original and stylish silk scarves and shawls.
The group that works with these artisans to market their products outside of Thailand subscribes to the Fair Trade business model. It works only with groups which allow it to visit and observe the products being made, guaranteeing safe working conditions and appropriate living wages for all members, and that child labor is strictly prohibited.
