Day 24 – Manumit’s Raw Silk Scarf
Raw silk is an exquisite and elegant material no matter where you desire to adorn it, be it worn or as a showpiece in your home. Manumit, which specialises in fair trade accessories, have a range of raw silk scarves handwoven by a team of artisan women in Vietnam. The scarves comes in brights as well as neutrals including raspberry, turquoise, navy and green. Manumit’s raw silk scarves are made using tassel silk under cruelty-free conditions, where the silk worm has left the cocoon before it is spun and therefore does not die in the silk process. The scarves are then dyed using eco-friendly AZO free dyes.
