This scarf has a hand embroidery done by ladies involved in the workshops that we have settled with GURIA, a Human Rights organisation fighting against the sexual exploitation of women and children, particularly those forced into prostitution and trafficking.
Each scarf is unique and made in silk saries provided by many women in Benaras who take this opportunity to get rid of pieces that they don’t want to wear anymore.
Those fabrics carry many stories, most of them were brought in order to celebrate happy moments, festivals or parties and in some ways they still keep traces of that in their yarns…
RED HALO is a collection of household linen based in Benaras (Varanasi – India) providing work to people who were living with difficulties and education to children.
