More to Know
Nepal/Tibetan Himalayan cashmere is renowned as some of the softest cashmere in the world. Cashmere is extremely light and luxuriously soft yet keeps you extremely warm.
All of Slate + Salt's cashmere scarves and throws are handloomed in Pokhara Nepal by blind, deaf, or disabled weavers. They partner with a local non-profit organization that provides them with the tools, training, and support necessary to become independent through weaving. In Nepal, the disabled are discriminated against in mainstream society. They have little or no opportunities for work. Weaving allows them to enjoy an independent life, increases their self-esteem, and also improves the way they are treated by their family. The organization further gives back to the disabled community by donating white canes, hearing aids, and wheelchairs, providing food, medicine, and essential goods for aged-care homes, helping the poor, and distributing relief to earthquake and landslide victims. With such a great cause, these are our most favorite pieces.
Originally used in Turkish baths, Turkish towels, also known as peshtamels or hammam towels, have been traditionally hand-loomed in Turkey for centuries. They are made using extra-long, tightly woven fibers which gives them a lightweight, yet highly absorbent quality. The patterns feature vibrant motifs conveying the timeless heritage of the Antatolia culture.
Slate & Salts towels and throws are loomed by small, family-owned workshops in the Denizli region of Turkey. Weaving is the main source of income for these skilled weavers, who pride themselves on keeping the looming tradition alive, utilizing manual craftsmanship without compromising quality. They only use eco-friendly, OEKO-TEX certified, 100% natural fibers such as cotton and bamboo and colors are achieved through non-harmful dyes. Tassels are hand-knotted by women in their homes.
