Wild Silk Shawl


The scarves and shawls, or “lamba” in Malagasy, are hand woven by women artisans from the Manandriana area, from 100% wild Madagascan silk using traditional equipment and spinning methods.

The silk comes from endemic wild silkworms called Borocera madagascariensis, which are found mainly in the tapia forests of this region.

The unique dyes are vegetable and mineral based. It takes the artisans a whole week to spin and weave this shawl.

This wild Malagasy silk shawl can be distinguished by its quality and strength.
