Fashionably Benevolent: Obakki Oxblood Scarf

First a little background info on Obakki before we get down to satisfying our shopping addictions. This Vancouver-based label was founded in 2005 by designer Treana Peake, an avid traveler and leading humanitarian who fused together her lifelong passions to create engaging and innovative philanthropy.

Peake's fashion mandate through Obakki has also been given widespread recognition in international publications like Vogue UK and Elle, while her contemporary, sophisticated designs have been spotted on celebrity devotees such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson. And now perhaps you?

Oxblood Scarf

Here I wanted to draw attention to the Obakki Of Signature Scarf in oxblood (it also comes in red), a classic winter accessory that would certainly come in handy during our current deep freeze. Better yet, for every 500 oxblood scarves sold, the Obakki Foundation is able to drill a water well in South Sudan, making you feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside as well as on the out.

So what kind of price can one expect to put on feeding their style and their soul? A mere $29, with local pickup available for those who live in BC. Oh, and while you’re filling out those Obakki order forms, do check out some of their other fashionably benevolent pieces:
