Mini scarf made from handwoven cotton dyed with natural colors. The scarf has the perfect size to be worn in your hair, but it also looks good as a neck scarf.
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 45cm and is made in Thailand.
