Mayu was born of Kate’s desire to bring hand-knit Peruvian products to a larger market, and is a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation. That means the company is committed to sustainable environmental practices and fair wages for the artisans involved.
This hooded shawl we’re offering today comes in four different two-color combinations, and while the story behind it is a good one, the pure utility and beauty of this piece (not to mention that it’s one-size-fits-all) makes it a no-brainer. It’ll work with a fancy dress as well as with jeans and T-shirt, and it’s warm enough to layer like a cardigan or substitute for a jacket, depending on the weather. It’s the perfect gift for anyone — assuming you can part with it.
