This squared scarf is hand-woven in the heart of the beautiful Siwa Oasis by talented Egyptian craftswomen. Siwa has a unique cultural heritage that contributes to Egypt’s rich and diverse identity. The local women create these beautiful shawls using the handloom weaving craft, influenced by the tribal culture of Siwa. This type of craft-making was inherited from the Pharaohs and lives on today.
This handwoven tribal-print shawl is made from 100% handpicked Egyptian cotton. It has lovely delicate fringes extending at its ends. The shawl is lined with embroidery fashioned in small precise cross-stitching. This lovely hand-woven patterned shawl comes in one size 80cm * 1m (31.5” * 39”).
It can be worn as a shawl, wrap, cover-up, or even an oriental-style hip wrap for dancing. It’s not just limited to clothing. It can also serve as a lovely piece of decor, adding a warm, ethnic accent to any space. This shawl looks great over a table or chair, or even draped across a wall, showcasing the talent of local Egyptian craftswomen.
Handle with care:
Wash in cold water, whether using a washing machine or washing by hand. Give garments a gentle stretch when they come out of the wash to get them back into shape. Always air dry: dry clothes flat and out of the sun if possible.
