York Scarves is a family business based just outside the lovely city of York. As a specialist UK scarf importer, supplier and distributor it is passionate about its product. Its aim is to bring to the market a unique and diverse range of well made, fair trade wholesale scarves at realistic prices and to prove that quality is not a forgotten word, and neither does it need to cost the earth. York Scarves is BAFTS registered and a recognised fair trade business.
From humble beginnings on a market stall in York market, York Scarves was established in 2007. It is a fair trade, wholesale organisation, dealing exclusively with a weaving cooperative based in northern India, which was itself established in 1977. Together the two have continued to go from strength to strength.
Each year they visit their weavers and workers in India and work with them in all the processes involved in bringing their fantastic scarves to you. Over time they have developed a close relationship with their suppliers that goes beyond business. They have seen family members married and new ones born in recent times. As their scarf business has grown so has their wholesale range of scarves, but they are probably best known for their silk scarves and fashion scarves.
