Anchita Nettle Scarve

Regular price 55.00€
The Allo scarves are made in the Himalayan mountain villages in Nepal. The scarves are a part of a project to support the self-reliance of the villages through their own traditions and handicrafts. The project also supports the villagers so that they can continue living in their local areas and do not need to leave the villages in order to earn an income.

The nettle fiber does not come in contact with any kind of chemical substances at any stage. The fiber is treated using traditional methods only. After the plant fiber has been spun into yarn, the scarves are knitted by hand. The finished products are carried by foot for two days to the nearest road, from where they are transported to Kathmandu.

The nettle material is similar to linen. It is is an excellent material, anddue to the limited treatment, the best qualities of natural fiber remain.Nettle softens in use, it keeps you warm in the cold and does not make you hot and sweaty in warm weatherNettle scarves do not irritate the skin or make it itch. Instead, the warmth of the skin softens the fiber, so the more you use it, the softer it gets.

The scarves are knitted from uncoloured yarn in natural tones. The color of the yarn varies depending on in what kind of soil the plant has grown. All scarves have different beautiful lace patterns. The patterns are passed down from generation to generation by the women in the village.
