We are embarking on a Butterfly Effect Movement & we invite you to come along and join us on our joyful journey!

The Butterfly Effect is a scientific phenomenon which states that a butterfly flapping its wings in South America affects the weather in Central Park. Our company recognizes that a similar effect occurs in the buying and selling of goods. A purchase in Central Park or Greenwich, or Sun Valley Idaho affects the lives of women and children in Southeast Asia and South America.

Therefore, we believe that by being a socially conscious enterprise we can contribute, along with our most valued customers, to the health, well-being, and joy of all who contribute to the production of your hand spun, hand loomed, hand dyed, and hand felted scarves/wraps.

It is for this reason that we purchase the majority of our silks from Southeast Asian Women Fair Trade Cooperatives and from U.S. Artisans. Silk weaving cooperatives provide alternative income to struggling communities and enable families to escape poverty by providing a means for the women to earn money to pay for their children’s food, medicine, shelter and education. The cooperatives also offer the women, the rare opportunity to actively engage in safe, enriching, and fulfilling work; while at the same time earning a fair wage for their work.

The women in these cooperatives are skilled artisans who further experience a new found sense of independence, empowerment and self worth, as many of their counterparts, working outside of these cooperatives, are grossly undervalued and underpaid for their work.

Numerous talented and skilled artisans have had a hand in the creation of your scarf/wrap. It can take up to 4 days to make 1 of our scarves/wraps. A weaver easily spends 2 full days to produce six metres of cloth (which a machine can churn out in a few minutes); it takes 1 day for the cloth or threads to be dyed and dried; and it then takes another full day for the silk and merino wool to be designed and hand felted by the textile artist.

So it is no surprise that you hold in your hand, a unique and elegant Work of Art! Enjoy it and thank you for your purchase.
