Scarves and shawls, unique & fair trade
Scarves, unique and handmade
Counting Flowers offers a distinctive collection of unique, handmade scarves. Each scarf is a work of art with delicate details, produced by the most talented artisans. The scarves are made from luxurious natural fibres. A special selection of silk scarves, pashmina, mohair, alpaca and cashmere shawls.
Counting Flowers works with Fairtrade organisations in developing countries. We also buy scarves directly from small scale entrepreneurs on the basis of Fairtrade principles. All profits (100%) go to education projects in these countries.
We are currently working with thirty-three artisans, cooperatives and organisations in eighteen countries.
Each scarf is available directly from stock. Select in the web shop on material, colour, national origin or price. View the scarf up close on the detailed photos.
You can always change your scarf or get your money refunded. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
