This handmade dark blue scarf made of cashmere and fine wool is part of our exquisite and limited “Charkha” collection.
Our handcrafted collection of cashmere and fine woolen scarves is called ‚Charkha‘, which means ‚hand spinning wheel‘ in Hindi. This is closely connected with Mahatma Gandhi, the father of Indian independence. Gandhi believed that the desire for freedom and social cohesion can be sparked by the sound of the spinning wheel. Through his teachings, he made it a symbol of non-violence, independence and a tool in the hands of the people to lift them out of poverty. Our handmade collection is made in the conflict areas of Jammu and Kashmir. We believe that Gandhi’s philosophy still applies today: local hand-woven works of art and the possibility of selling them on the international market,
The blue color of this scarf was inspired by the city of Jodhpur, which is also known as the ‚Blue City‘ or ‚Blue City‘. In Jodhpur, a wide sea of blue houses stretches for several kilometers along the wall of the historic old town. Once the blue color only adorned the houses of the Brahmins, the priests, and thus emphasized them. But over time, the other residents also painted their house facades with the cooling paint, until finally almost the entire old town was immersed in a multi-faceted blue.
