FAIRTRADE FRIDAY: SCARVES

Happy Friday! In the comments to last week’s Fairtrade Friday post, my lovely bestie Rosie suggested a post about scarves. So here it is!

It’s actually excellent timing, since it’s starting to get cold in Canberra. I know it’s not happening everywhere yet – I hear Perth was 35 degrees Celsius today – but if the temperature is dropping in Canberra, winter is coming (sorry, but Game of Thrones is back!)

Scarves truly are the easiest Fair Trade item to buy. I’m not exaggerating. There is a massive variety in every colour, fabric, and pattern imaginable. It was hard to narrow down, but here are some of my favourites:

2. Batik Cotton Infinity Scarf available online from Global Goods Partners for $45.00USD.

This gorgeous scarf reminds me of the midnight sky. I think it would be perfect on a cool winter’s night with a tailored blazer in black or white.

3. Handpainted Silk Scarf in soft watercolour available online from Connected Goods for $180.00USD.

Okay, so this scarf is definitely a splurge. But is it not the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen? There are plenty of other gorgeous patterns and colours available.

4. Fair + True Knitted Snood available online from Fashion-Conscience for £25.00GBP.

This is similar to a grey snood I bought from People Tree last year. I wore it to death because it is so versatile. Highly recommended.

5. Alpaca Scarf in office grey available online from Oz Fair Trade for $55.00.

Again, there are lots of different colours in this beautiful scarf. I cannot decided between this one, the platinum and the orange.

6. Color Block Infinity Scarf from Hearts.com for $15.20USD.

I love red paired with a warm neutral, like on this scarf. Not to mention, it’s super affordable.

I can’t wait to start wearing scarves! What’s the weather like where you are?
