Thakoon-horn-of-africa

Many designers source ethnic societies for their aesthetic value with no regard for the actual community from which this inspriation is derived. Not Thakoon!

As the Horn of Africa [Somalia, Kenya, Ethiopia, and Djibouti, to name a few] suffers from the worst famine of their history, experiencing widespread drought and limited food supplies, Thakoon offers a scarf from the same print featured in the Fall 2011 collection. 100% of the proceeds will go toward a relief organization for the region.

I guess " we should be" happy that they are at least promoting this for a good cause...
