Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
These pure wool and cotton-lined handknitted earwarmer headbands are totally brilliant for keeping you feeling warm, on cold days. They fit snuggly, aren't bulky, you forget you're wearing it but your ears and head feel protected. They come in gorgeous earthy colours and are knitted in the Himalayas by small groups of artisans. They are designed and imported by one of the small design-led companies we show - Aura Que is a collaboration between UK designer Laura Queening and the small producer groups she works with in Asia. She looks to use traditional skills and local materials as much as possible, aiming to encourage empowerment through work for the individual producers who make the items. She has a passion for Eastern design and appreciation for artisan craftsmanship, handmade processes and traditional textiles.
The headbands measure approxmately 32cm around.
Each product is brought to life in collaboration with their producer group in Vietnam, a World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO) member, that provides secure employment to disadvantaged women and marginalized groups in society.
