Further Information

Each one of the 1,127 scarves of PROJECT ELEVEN27 is individually handwoven with silk, cotton, and recycled sarees collected from women in rural villages around Kutch, India. They are handwoven by artisans that have been practicing this artistry for centuries and Laura Siegel stands to sustain their cultures through bringing their traditional craft to the western world. 

During Laura's most recent trip to India, she collected used sarees and collaborated with local artisans to design this item that embodies their culture and unique craft.

Each scarf is made in memory of an individual that lost his or her life in the Rana Plaza collapse in Bangladesh in April of 2013. A portion of the proceeds from each purchase is going to Sreepur Village Organization.
