saheli kani wool skirt
colorful, soft, and warm, our kani wool skirt has just the right touch of fun and flair. made of 100% authentic pashmina shawls, ethically sourced and loomed with a multitude of thread shades. each kani shawl is unique, patchworked together by our partners in india, the saheli women — meaning that, while the color scheme will be the same, each skirt's print placement is one-of-a-kind. gentle ruffle cascades through the front of the skirt, side zip closure, and side slit for ease and movement.

the saheli women community center is a women-run enterprise employing 40+ female artisans in the village of bhikamkor, rajasthan. collaborating with a few small fashion brands provides these women with not only a happy work environment and fair wages, but skill development, health education, and insurance. under the umbrella of iphd india, the saheli enterprise also funds sponsorship for young girls to attend school, holds workshops on female hygiene and health, and runs the only female health clinic in the village. the saheli women have transformed the village of bhikamkor, and, with training and guidance, hope to eventually replicate this project in other villages across india. the word “saheli” in hindi means “female friend,” and these women create goods that are meant to be treasured, symbolic of the power of friendship, respect, gender equality, and fair wages.
