The Jaisalmer scarf was created in collaboration with and on behalf of the CITTA Foundation to help raise funds and awareness in developing an innovative school/cooperative in Jaisalmer, India. The initiative aims to provide young girls with an education in combination with a women’s economic development program. The Thar desert colors northwest of Jaisalmer and the ornate building compound that will be restored to function as the girl’s school, were the inspiration for the scarf.
