Our best-seller poppy gold silk scarf is now in a shawl! 

The national flower in Palestine is the poppyseed. Using the traditional Palestinian Kefiyyah (Hatta) known to represent resistance, we have incorporated our national poppyseed flower into the fishnet pattern making this one-of-a-kind and unique print.  Poppyseed flowers can be seen in fields across Palestine and also incorporate the colors of the Palestinian flag.

Made of the softest high quality natural fibers, we chose a lightweight blend that is 90% modal and 10% cashmere. Modal is a bio-based fabric that is made from spinning reconstituted beech tree cellulose and cashmere is the most luxurious wool that is both breathable and regulates our body temperature. When it's cold cashmere fibers hold in body heat and when it's warm, its fibers absorbs perspiration to keep us cool.

Each scarf is printed, stitched, and hand frayed by a small family run factory in Turkey.

Due to the delicate nature of this fabric we recommend using no pins or magnetic pins if needed.

100% of profits will be donated to urgent relief efforts in Palestine via: Palestine Red Crescent Society & Palestine Children's Relief Fund
