YOUR NEW SCARF'S DNA

ETHICALLY MADE BY LOCAL ARTISANS IN PERU

Handmade with love by local artisans using eco-friendly natural materials & production was guided by Fair Trade principles at every stage.


The alpaca fibre that is used to make this scarf comes from small artisanal farmers in the Peruvian highlands who work by traditional farming methods and a close eye is kept on sustainability.


The hand-loomed nature of this scarf means it's one-of-a-kind & completely unique — slight colour & pattern variations occur in production


ECO-FRIENDLY 100% Natural Fibre

Alpaca fibre is considered by the fashion industry to be one the greenest, most natural and luxurious fibres in the world. It is prized for its unique silky and luxurious feel and has a lesser tendency to pilling.


Alpaca is supple and smooth to the touch and because of the featherweight, it’s ultra-light. Alpaca is softer than cashmere and warmer and stronger than lamb’s wool. It contains microscopic air pockets which create lightweight clothing with excellent insulating properties. It is a completely natural fibre and there is no use of harsh chemicals in production.


CARE GUIDE

Hand wash cold with like colors and hang dry.

+ How Do You Make Ethics Stylish By Design?

Wanderlost and Found is an ethical marketplace for mindfully made products

We're committed to making ethics stylish by design. Ethical considerations are at the forefront of everything we do. We ask the tough ethical questions of our production partners to help you make ethical online shopping a breeze.


We offer products that aren't just token ethical gifts, or greenwashed fantasies. We believe in transparency and clarity.


That's why we question assumed knowledge about sustainability and ethics so we can look at the entire production chain, not just one part of it. That's why we go deeper than 'environmentally friendly' or 'handmade' because those easy labels don't always tell the whole story of how a product has been created. They don't always honour sustainable development. They don't always take working conditions into account.

Sometimes labels offer easy answers — highlighting one good thing over a parade of unsustainable practices. That's why we're going beyond the basics to focus on sustainable manufacturing. It's why we're committed to fair fashion AND sustainable fashion. It's why we source handmade gifts from around the world and offset their carbon footprint when shipping them to you.

We're determined to improve day after day. Sustainable business models aren't an optional extra or marketing opportunity. The world needs better. That's why Wanderlost & Found is an artisan store that respects our shared future — embedding sustainable business practices wherever we can, whenever we can, however we can.

We're not afraid to keep changing, improving and evolving our sustainability commitments. We're here to be as ethical as possible without sacrificing style.

+ When Will My Order Be Delivered?

+ Why Do You Ship Items Separately?

We Ship Items Separately So They Arrive Crisp, Fresh & As Quickly As Possible

All our items are packaged with care and mostly grouped by product type for shipping—so if you order a phone case, pillow, and an art print in the same order they will arrive in three separate packages. 


Packaging for tough totes

We seal each of our tote bags in individual plastic sleeves and then pack the sleeves in plastic tough bags for shipping. If you purchases two or more bags in a single order then they will be packed in individual plastic sleeves and then bundled together in a plastic tough bag for shipping.


Packaging for greeting cards

We seal each of our greeting cards in individual plastic sleeves and then pack the sleeves in plastic tough bags for shipping. If you purchases two or more packs of greeting cards in a single order then they will be packed in individual plastic sleeves and then bundled together in a plastic tough bag for shipping.


Packaging for iPhone/Samsung cases

We seal our phone cases in individual plastic sleeves and then pack each of the sleeves in their own plastic tough bag for shipping. If you purchases two or more cases in a single order then they will be packed in individual plastic sleeves and then bundled together in a plastic tough bag for shipping.


Packaging for notebooks

We seal each of our notebooks in individual plastic sleeves and then pack the sleeves in plastic tough bags for shipping. If you purchases two or more notebooks in a single order then they will be packed in individual plastic sleeves and then bundled together in a plastic tough bag for shipping.


Packaging for pillows

We seal our pillows in individual plastic sleeves and then pack each of the sleeves in their own plastic tough bag for shipping.


Packaging for wall art / fine art prints

We send our posters in super-durable kraft tubes with plastic seals at either end secured by packing tape.


We package different product types separately.

Because of the variety of products we produce, we package each item based on dimension requirements to ensure protection during shipment. So if you place an order that has two totes and a beach bags, all three items will probably arrive in the same package. If you place an order with multiple product types e.g. 1 bag, a pillow and a poster, then each product type will probably be packaged and shipped separately. We may package a phone case and bag together. But we send our posters in super-durable kraft tubes, and try as we might... a pillow just won't fit in there.
