“We always long for the forbidden things, and desire what is denied us.”
(Francois Rabelais – French author, 1483-1553)

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.

This picture belongs to a series showing several patterns of this new scarf which became an “objet of desire” among friends and clients since a few days and this is the reason why it is connected to quotes revolving around this topic.
Thank you all of you who have been helping the Guria ladies and for supporting this happy event.
