Upcycled Pastel Ikat Silk Hand Ornament
From the heart of Afghanistan, this beautiful upcycled Ikat charm is made of traditional hand-woven and hand-dyed Ikat fabric from Uzbekistan, and is sewn by women artisans in Kabul. 100% of profits support Zarif Design, a social enterprise based in Kabul, that empowers Afghan weavers and embroiderers, and promotes economic sustainability through the use of traditional skills and materials. This charm extends the hand of peace.
