We know it’s not exactly scarf season, but with Hong Kong air-cons blasting (hello, freezing cold shopping malls and taxis), there’s no harm stocking up. Plus, if we can buy something gorgeous, knowing that a 100% of the money goes to charity, we’re all for it! Thats right, all the proceeds from the sales of this shawl collection will be used for food and aid to support Syrian refugees. We especially love this handmade pashmina embroidered shawl that adds a delicate touch to any outfit.
