The Gurkha Welfare Trust scarf

What’s it all about?

Our friends at Just Wool Textiles have kindly designed a scarf in honour of Gurkha veterans. For each scarf sold, they will donate £5 to the Trust – get yours today!

The Gurkhas are a legendary part of the British Armed Forces… to which I owe a debt of thanks. This is why I decided to produce a scarf inspired by the GWT logo

The material is sourced from the British Isles and the British Falkland Islands. It’s of the highest quality to produce soft and comfortable accessories.

What does the design symbolise?

The design takes its core palette from the Trust’s house colours of green and red. The double gold line down the centre pays tribute to the Gurkhas’ two hundred years of loyal service to the British Crown.

The silver-grey either side symbolises the kukri – the traditional weapon of Nepalese and Gurkha soldiers everywhere.

Why the GWT?

Just Wool founder Neil explains his support for the Trust: “I have a passion for the Falkland Islands, have islanders as friends and have been fortunate to visit the islands many times.

“The Gurkhas are a legendary part of the British Armed Forces and were very much a part of the islands’ liberation, to which I owe a debt of thanks.

“This is why I decided to produce a scarf inspired by the GWT logo, with a donation being made to the Trust for each scarf sold. Whilst my business exists to allow me to live, it is also important to me that I can do something positive along the way.”
