Sorry, this combination is not available.

The gauzy, deep red Pakudos Hand-Embroidered Scarf displays a striking white and navy 'Pakudos' motif. Wrap it around your neck, braid it into your hair or keep as a hanky. The "Pakudos" symbol is believed to bring protection to the wearer. Mangyan women traditionally took many days to complete the pakudos bandana in which they would plant, harvest, separate, dry, spin, and then weave the cotton fibers. Today, the cotton is purchased at the market and then cut, assembled, and embroidered.
