Embroidered Bow Scarf - Grey

Price:  £8.00

This elegant embroidered bow scarf by Earth Squared is stylish, practical and fair trade.

It is double sided, with the front being a soft knit, whilst the back is a plain jersey fabric in a slightly darker grey than the front.

The main feature of this scarf is the embroidered bow design on the front at each end, with 6 bows in pink, orange and white. The front also features specks in the same colours to add a bit of design interest.

As well being a great looking scarf it is practical to wear - as it is warm enough to keep the chills at bay during winter, but thin enough to be worn comfortably under a coat.

What Earth Squared say about themselves…

Earth Squared has been working closely with a fair trade company based in Northern Vietnam for the past 10 years. We work together to ensure fair trade criteria are embedded into everyday working life.

Almost all of the artisans who make the products were originally rice farmers earning a subsistent, irregular and inconsistent wage. Working as a seamstress a woman can earn a good standard of living and also send their children to school and on to higher education. In addition our partners pay national insurance for each staff member that covers medical costs and provides a pension for retirement all of which is above the national legal requirements. The working conditions at the workshops are clean and safe and the staff have regular breaks and days off work.

The company give disadvantaged women the opportunity and support to improve their lives through secure work, training and a healthy working life giving them financial security and self-confidence. Each purchase helps us all to create more work opportunities for other disadvantaged women and change their lives and those of their families.

We are a small home based business.

We keep all stock at home, so when you place an order, we don't have to travel to collect or package your items. It's all done in our home office.

We package the majority of our goods in recycled plastic mailing bags. Originally we started doing this to protect against rainwater, but now it means you have the option to disinfect the package when it arrives in your home.

We have been strictly observing the government's advice and have been socially distancing - staying in apart from for essential trips - since 16 March.

As far as we can be sure, nobody who lives in or has visited our home has been ill since the outbreak hit the UK.

We use the Royal Mail and very occasionally Parcelforce for deliveries. We have a "Drop & Go" account so we don't have to wait in line or get within 2 metres of anyone when we post out your goods. As long as our local post offices are open, and we remain well, we will get your orders out. Like a lot of essential services, the Royal Mail is under pressure with staff self-isolating, so your parcel may not arrive as quickly as you would normally expect, None of this is normal, but we'll get through it together.

Artisans and producers in low income countries rely on fair trade to support their families. Fair trade has helped build some resilience into the communities we help in the form of better hygiene and sanitation, better nutrition and healthcare support. Most of the countries where our goods originate have banned exports and imports to limit the spread of the virus. This means workers are unable to get their work to us, and in some cases their workshops are closed. Our suppliers are continuing to pay for and place orders to keep their producers going through what we hope is a very short-lived period in our lives. In contrast, high street fashion companies in the UK have cancelled $1.5bn in orders with garment factories in Bangladesh, putting thousands of low paid women out of work.

The need for fair trade has never been clearer. Thank you for your support and stay safe and well.
