Shay-shay in Bhutanese language means fruitful, depicting bountiful success in our endeavours. This scarf is to remember, celebrate and thank our teachers - the ones who are pillars behind our bountiful success.

In this story, a young teacher by name of Karma was posted to the remotest part of Bhutan to teach. Worrying about her well-being, her seniors checked on her and found Karma to be in good spirits and enjoying her posting. From the picture (courtesy of Karma Wangchuk), young teacher Karma is a picture of calm beauty, obviously a positive impact on her chargees with shiny eyes.

Each scarf takes at least a few days to hand weave, starting from yarn spinning to tassel rolling. By purchasing one, you are also helping to empower Bhutanese artisan women to use their creative talents to become financially independent.
