All of our scarves are created by the Maisha Collective, a Nairobi, Kenya-based group of young refugee women from DR Congo, Somalia, Ethiopia, Sudan, and Burundi. The Maisha Collective is a project of Heshima Kenya, an organization which empowers young refugee women to rebuild their lives with peace and dignity. By managing a business collective that designs and produces unique hand-dyed scarves, the Maisha members develop confidence and gain important skills for future independence. Your purchase of a Maisha scarf contributes directly to the Collective participants' weekly wages and support of Heshima Kenya’s education and shelter programs. Most importantly, your purchase inspires the Maisha women’s journey to become Ambassadors who support, empower, and ultimately protect other refugee women. To learn more about the mission of Heshima Kenya, please visit our website at www.heshimakenya.org.

The Maisha Collective uses traditional African dying techniques, called resist dyeing, or tie-dyeing. Each scarf is a rayon and cotton blend, and measures 36”w by 90”l with 3-inch tassels at the end. For best care, hand wash and dry flat. You can refresh the scarf by ironing or steaming.

*All scarves are hand-made and one-of-a kind; the pattern or color may vary slightly.*
