This scarf is inspired by the Sloth Bear that is found in Ranthambore National Park in India.

Sloth Bears, the Baloo of Kipling’s Jungle Book, have a long, shaggy coat with a whitish “U” mark on their chests. Even in the hot climate, they don’t mind the long coat because it protects them from being bitten by their favorite food — insects! They hunt using their keen sense of smell and can smell bugs that are 3 feet underground. Sloth Bears are vulnerable as they are threatened by habitat loss all over South Asia.

100% Responsibly Sourced Cashmere
Dyes are low impact, fiber reactive, and AZO free

The antibacterial properties of cashmere fibers mean they only require occasional cleaning. Airing your cashmere and a steam press may be enough to keep it clean. If more cleaning is needed we recommend eco or green dry cleaning for woven cashmere.

A portion of proceeds will be donated to Tiger Watch, an organization that works to protect and conserve the wildlife of Ranthambore.
