Dig deep for your pleasure and embrace the coziness of it. There's only one of you. Remember! Life research is formalized curiosity. It is poking and prying with a purpose.

Living like nomads around the world I am often reminded how women are not valued in the world. I often see brushing of the equality between man and woman world and it scares me to the bone seeing how some women submissively respond to their own surroundings. It all begins with your upbringing. With how one is thought to live. How one sees and learns to live.
One of my dear Indian woman friends started her working life when she was 9. Her parents sent her to work so she could take care of them. When I met her, her value of herself as a woman was utterly poor. She felt small in the presence and all I could hear from her was her wish that she had been born as a man because only then would her life have been better. It broke my heart. That was three years ago. Today this same woman has changed. I can see it and I know because she told me recently “seeing you stepping up for yourself and how you are giving proper education to your girls about how important it is to be aware of being a woman, makes me feel powerful myself”.
And that's how Purpose - cotton voile scarf was born. 

LENGTH OF GARMENT:
240 cm x 105 cm / 94.4" x 41.3"

MATERIAL:
Purpose is made out of cotton voile fabric. Voile is a soft, sheer fabric, made of 100% cotton. It is a thinner thread and has a very soft drape that's almost silk-like. It's a lot like I imagine hugging a cloud would be. Lighter colors can even seem a bit translucent.

Cotton voile is a perfect option for casual clothes. I bet you there are high chances of you using this scarf in evening wear because it does look dressy enough compared to all the other dressy fabrics. Apart from evening wear, it is one of the best materials for everyday wear: after all, cotton is hypoallergenic, which means it is great with sensitive skin.

It can be your sarong for the beach or a body wrap for a chilly night, a winter scarf around the neck, or a piece of statement as a head wrap. Either or you decide to wear it or just hang it on the wall it will be your unique bold style.

CARE FOR YOUR SCARF:
Wash it by hand, using a gentle detergent made for fine fabrics and hand washables.
