Handwoven scarf in a light mesh pattern. The base color of the scarf is creamy white with interwoven strings of pink, green and blue.

It is best to wash the scarf by hand, as it prevents the cotton from creasing, but if you machine-wash the scarf, do it at low temperatures and choose the slowest spin cycle. The scarf is dyed using natural colors that might fade slightly when washing. Do not tumble dry the scarf.

The scarf measures 45cm x 175cm and is made in Thailand.

The scarf is designed by Chimmuwa, which is a part of Borderline Collective in Mae Sot, Thailand. Chimmuwa was founded by Sylvia and Nor-Nor with the purpose of providing employment opportunities and job training for young female migrants and refugees from Myanmar.
