SL Buy-It-Now: One Mango Tree Scarves [$18.20]

Lately we've found it much easier to include Africa in our closets through accessories, and Uganda-based One Mango Tree's scarves are a good place to start if you haven't already. Here's what you're paying for:
Handmade by a group of skilled artisan weavers at Wawoto Kacel Cooperative Society in Northern Uganda, these scarves are made from gorgeous hand-dyed cotton.  The designs are developed by the artisans themselves - a unique pattern that resembles the ikat weavings of Central Asia.
These scarves pack quite the punch, no? Shop an assortment of colours here.
