Artisan Scarves – Handmade Cotton Scarf Spring

When it’s cold outside, this handmade cotton scarf spring is precisely what you need! Thickly textured and luscious, it’s guaranteed to keep you warm during the chilliest of days. Measuring an average 160×45 cm, this artisan cotton scarf will be just the right size to tuck into your overcoat or vest.

Wan Dedee was founded by a group of local artisan weavers looking to revive and improve their artisanry. This handwoven cotton scarf is the direct result of these efforts. Years of weaving experience guarantees a consistent quality across the board. Metiisto Fashion recognizes and supports their efforts to maintain traditional craftsmanship in modern times.

These Chiang Mai artisans use only pastel colors with their products, leading to an array of subtle yet beautiful colorations. Soft and warm to the touch – including intrinsic knotted details –  their handwoven cotton scarves are a true testament to the know-how and traditional knowledge being passed down from generation to generation in Thailand.

The natural properties of cotton

Cotton fiber is soft, absorbent, and breathable, making it perfectly suitable for clothing and our artisan cotton scarves, as these are traditionally worn close to the skin. Thermoregulation, or proper conduction of heat, ensures that your body stays cool in summer and warm in winter. Cotton is also non-allergenic, not an unimportant fact for people with sensitive skin!

Due to the unique fiber structure, cotton scarves breathe better and are more comfortable than oil-based synthetic neckwear. Cotton holds up to 27 times its weight in water and becomes even stronger when wet. There is also no risk of any static cling with cotton fiber, as it can’t hold an electric charge.
