Our mission is to create a circular economy where you can enjoy sustainable high quality scarves that is kind to our planet, while empowering women and girls with an independent life of freedom.
To ensure the fibres in our scarves are cruelty free and kind to our planet we chose to use the most sustainable plant-based material we could find. All our scarves are made from 100% natural bamboo linen, which requires zero pesticides and chemicals, and a minimal amount of water to produce. Our scarves are dyed with either plants and herbs or an eco-friendly azo-free dye.
It is a basic human right to live in freedom and to have equal opportunities in life. Through Bahini, survivors of sex-trafficking are employed, paid a fair wage and reintegrated into society with the help of our carefully selected Fair Trade certified partners.
Every girl has the right to grow and to live a life of freedom. The profit from each scarf we sell goes directly towards educational scholarships for young survivors and to girls at risk. Our hope is for every girl to gain strength through education, and find the power to shape their individual futures.
I love Bahini scarves - while they are made cruelty free, they help delivering women from the cruelty of sex-trafficking.
I love Bahini scarves for through making these beautiful objects they help women who went through so much yet remain so resilient to gain independence and hope.
I love the unique characters each Bahini scarf has because they are made in traditional, ethnic manner and materials by these everyday artists/artisans.
With all that said, one negative aspect about Bahini is that these scarves are so beautiful, versatile and functional, I have difficulty to choose which one to buy so I stopped at seven.
A Bahini really is a perfect gift for just anyone and for any occasion. Of course it is also a suitable gift for yourself.
Just like the Shyra I've already had for a while, the quality of this scarf is second to none. Soft to the touch, comfortable to wear, and the color is perfect!
Arrived quickly, mine came out with a green tinge to it that turns grey in the light, so at first looks a little different from the website but is absolutely gorgeous!
the material is so nice, soft and natural. very comfortable for use directly on your skin. the colour is very neutral to match with any colors of clothing too. wish the women and girls get blessed in Nepal.
I love my scarf and it has become more and more soft for each day I’ve used it!
Absolutely love this scarf! I didn’t know how soft and silky bamboo linen felt until I got this! Highly recommend this 💕
I got the pink Sunrise scarf and it matches perfectly with any outfit I want to have, due to the soft tones. The material is really comfortable and I love wearing a scarf which also makes a statement. Whenever anyone asks me about the scarf, I share the story of the brand and feel good about having a scarf which is both beautiful and eco-friendly, but also vegan and supports an important cause. Thank you My Bahini!
The shipping went fast! When I got my scarf I loved it from the first time I touched it. It is so soft. So when my 4 year old touched the scarf he just said it’s his, he cuddles with it all the :)
The Bahini pin is tiny but useful! I can use it with all my scarves.
The shipping was fast and without any problems ❤️
