KINSFOLK is devoted to preserving the craft of handmade textiles by combining traditional methods with a modern aesthetic. Our goal is to celebrate enduring design that inspires for a lifetime. Our principles are to manufacture ethically and ensure that artisans earn a sustainable living.
The KINSFOLK hand-woven cashmere scarves have been created in a cottage industry where family members, using their own handloom, carry out production at home. The very fine, flossy pashmina fibres are blended with 20% silk to give an exceptional softness and durability. After the yarn is hand dyed with beautiful shades to reflect colour and textural stories it takes around two weeks for the artisan to weave just one scarf.
By choosing handloom fabrics over machine- milled fabric, we reduce the carbon footprint of our products as well as employ nine times as many people. The beauty of these scarves lies in the gorgeous handcrafted materials and in the fact that they support a fading industry—socially, economically and environmentally.
