Elephants are clever beasts and none more so than Kala Bo’s! Each magical parade of tiny pachyderms – at least 30 in each scarf – is carefully handwoven using jamdani, a demanding technique revered by India’s Mughal emperors.
With cotton this fine, you can float your very own elephant herd (in miniature of course) around your shoulders, ruffle up or gently wrap, making Kala Bo versatile - and lovely to wear! Handloomed in Bengal from high quality cotton, these wonderfully light and tactile scarves combine comfort, charm and culture – making a delightful gift or desirable wardrobe staple.
Kala Bo is wife to Ganesha, the much-loved elephant god. While not technically a goddess – she’s often depicted as a banana tree – we love the story, the verve of banana plants, not to mention the fruit so beloved of elephants!
There are two charming elephant designs in Kala Bo: solo features many ‘single’ elephants; and polo depicts pairs of elephants playing ball. Both designs come in the same five colours: aqua, blush, dusk, sky and plum – on creamy-white.
