The weather has been bitter in the morning this week and a scarf is a perfect add-on to keep warm. Collections of scarves are abundant in boutiques, however a dud scarf can break an otherwise chic outfit. Scarves should tie an outfit together. Bright scarves add a pop of color to a more subdued outfit, whereas a brown or black scarf tones down color. How to choose the right one? The best solution is to have a couple to choose from depending on your ensemble for the day.
Of course an eco-chick must have an adorable eco-conscious scarf, like these from TDM Design. The Nepali collection is a perfect solution for some eco-chic warmth.
Nepali began when the cofounder Michele Baldwin began to draw inspiration on her frequent trips to Nepal. She loved the vibrant colors and the natural fibers that the weavers used. Nepali was launched in 2007 and creates cute and sustainable scarves woven in Nepal. TDM Design works directly with women’s cottage industries in Nepal to support both women weavers and women’s craftsmanship.
Nepali TDM Design provides the women of Nepal with a sustainable income with above market compensation, education, and health care benefits. This helps foster the women’s future and allows them to generate a consistent income. Design also puts their weavers’ children through school and provides significant health care services. These opportunities allow both these women and their families to become more stabilized.
Design provides these women not just with the first steps to overcome impoverishment, but ensures the chances that the next generation of Nepalese women will have a stabilized income and be better off to care for their families. It changes their future. (How cool!)
The handmade scarves are composed of natural materials like silk, bamboo, modal, cashmere, wool, and azo-free dies.
The scarves are hip and beautiful with hundreds of different patterns and colors. These patterns include the new animal print, which embodies one of the biggest trends of the season. The vibrant color options allow the scarves to be mixed and matched with business attire to weekend casual.
