The Calado Scarf
Beautiful. Unique. Luxurious.
The Aymara people of northern Chile live high in South America’s Andean mountain range. Here, extreme temperatures can range from -20º to 40º in a single day.
These mountains play a central role in Aymara community life, providing pasture lands for animal grazing and various natural resources for the communities who live in this remote paradise.
Known for its heat-trapping and moisture-wicking properties, alpaca wool is a prized luxury material traditionally used to make various types of clothing to withstand the extreme weather.
The Calado Scarf references the awe-inspiring Andes with the mountain motif, a traditional Indigenous symbol, handwoven into each piece.
This scarf measures 60 cm wide and 200 cm long.
100% Alpaca wool.
100% Feel good, socially conscious slow fashion.
Price in Canadian Dollars
Like all of our products, the Calado scarf is made to order by a member of the Aymar Sawuri cooperative, like Juana, Maritza, Marcelina, Nancy and Maria pictured here below. This means we keep our inventories small and lean, and our artists earn direct profits at the time of order. Please allow 2-3 weeks for production from the time of order.
