Obakki Foundation launches new scarf collection

Vancouver-based not-for-profit Obakki Foundation announced on Tuesday the launch of its 16th limited edition scarf. The new scarf has launched in the colour 'brick' and will bring clean water to the village of Mayen Atol with the construction of a new clean water well.
 
The scarf is a part of Obakki’s Scarves for Water program which is dedicated to selling scarves that bring clean water to many villages in remote areas of South Sudan, Africa. Every village is assigned a specific scarf colour. The sale of 500 scarves of each colour allows for the construction of a new water well.

The new limited edition 'brick' scarves are a lightweight modal blend composed of 65 percent rayon and 35 percent modal. The scarves stand at 130 x 130 cm and will sell for $29 Canadian.
 
Since the Scarves for Water are limited editions, only 500 scarves in the new colour will be sold, then the colour will be considered “retired”. One hundred percent of the net proceeds of each scarf goes towards building a well.
 
There are currently five other limited edition colour scarves available for sale – Foundation 'red' (Malual Chum), 'noir' (Village of Matangai), 'cobalt' (Village of Nyaga), 'sand' (Village of Mayike) and 'maize' (Village of Makernhom).
 
A scarf can be purchased at obakkifoundation.org.
 
The Scarves for Water program has lead to the construction of more than ten clean water wells (and counting) in South Sudan. Obakki Designs is a world-renowned, luxury fashion label offering classic and refined styles for the modern woman. Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson and Zooey Deschanel have all been photographed wearing Obakki.
