We sell scarves to help educate children, and change the world.
The Jacob's Scarves story started in 2012, when founder Kiri Berdan spent a semester abroad in Zhongshan, China. She was there teaching English, when she met a family living in her building. The four adults in the family, parents and grandparents, each worked more than 12+ hours per day. Regardless, they could not afford Jacob's elementary education. As an English teacher, Kiri understood the value of an education and knew something had to be done.
We started selling scarves to reach our goal of sending Jacob to school to receive an education. Since then, Jacob's Scarves vision and impact has grown. We are now proud to say that within our scarf collection you will find fabric made in Uganda, handmade scarves from both Mexico and Bolivia, and a dozen different designs and styles. We also have stretched our goal of sending more than one student to school and are continually growing and expanding our vision and desires for education around the world.
