The brand 'Nokshi Crafts' is offering a scarf collection that is hand-painted and ethically produced.

The scarves are made with silk and decorated by artisans in Bangladesh. They are hand-painted and hand-dyed by skilled workers in rural areas of the country -- particularly women as they lack access to employment opportunities more than their male counterparts do. The brand ensures that these skilled artisans are paid fair wages and work in safe conditions, while the production process ensures that the scarves are high-quality and have a minimal impact on the environment.

This scarf collection's ability to function as an environmentally sustainable and ethical fashion product sets a precedent for other brands to adopt similar business models.
