Knitted Lace Turban
There are many reasons to wear a turban, from the fantastically fashionable to the most mundane. Women's fashion has embraced the turban for hundreds of years, and have a long history as cultural and religious headwear in parts of Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. This fun and versatile head wear allows a woman to make a brilliant fashion statement, cover up a bad hair day, or keep herself warm.
How to Wear It: Place center of turban at nape of neck and tie at front of head, covering ears slightly. Tie a second knot and fold ends behind and tuck into the back of the turban.
It comes in 3 colors: Beehive, Sunset and Ivory. It is made of fine 70% merino wool and 30% cotton.
It measures approximately 40 inches long. Do remember, that each hand knit item is unique and sizes may vary slightly.
Hand knit with love by a mama who also plants rice in the rice terraces (take a look at the P20 bill to see what they look like).
Knitting Expedition was begun as a way to provide supplementary income for the women of Ifugao to maintain the rice terraces. Instead of leaving the region to find better paying jobs, the income from the sales of the products allows them to stay in their ancestral lands and continue their traditions of rice terrace farming. The rice terraces in Ifugao are not only an awe-inspiring legacy of their village, but also of the Philippines, and has provided sustenance for generations of their families. The brand Knitting Expedition also signifies the journey of founders, Candy and Aueeie, as knitters and the distance that the hand-knit products have to travel to make it to your homes.
