    Product information

    Product update - 10/12/2020

    Due to variations in the dying process, this organic cotton scarf formerly advertised as Burgundy, featured in the winter catalogue, has been redefined as Russet. This update has been made to best represent the actual product colour.

    Part of our organic cotton scarf collection, inspired by nature... This richly coloured RSPB organic cotton scarf in russet is made from soft organic cotton with strong environmental and ethical benefits over non-organic cotton, proving that fashion doesn't have to cost the earth.


    • Length 180cm

    The cotton story

    Cotton is the world's largest non-food crop, and millions of people rely on the industry for survival. However, the environmental impacts of conventional cotton farming can be devestating.

    GOTS certified organic cotton scarfs logo

    Cotton production uses huge volumes of water, which has led to the loss of habitats around the world - for people and animals. 

    In addition, most fabrics made from cotton rely on farming methods that use harmful pesticides. The run-off from contaminated fields can poison rivers, wildlife and whole communities.

    Furthermore the cost of these pesticides often leave farmers trapped in debt.

    GOTS certified organic cotton

    Organic cotton is produced without the use of synthetic fertilisers and pesticides. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) ensures textiles are produced in a more ecological and socially responsible way.

    • Water use is monitored, with targets set to reduce water consumption and increase efficiency more sustainably
    • Pesticides are not used, encouraging more wildlife-friendly farming
    • Social criteria are also required: Minimum wages, safe working conditions, and fair working hours.
    • Using a natural fibre like cotton means microplastics leeching from fabrics into our waterways is not an issue

    Look out for the GOTS logo and better alternatives to non-organic cotton when updating your wardrobe.

    Beautiful lightweight scarf
    I bought this robin scarf for my Mum (and the blue one with birds for myself!) and they are beautiful lightweight scarves.

    I read other reviews before purchasing so I knew it was going to be more brown than burgundy going in. I would've liked it to be more burgundy (as I love all shades of red) but it suits my mum just fine as it is so I have no complaints on that score! It's a charming print and that's what I bought it for.

    Wrong colour
    Same experience here - expected burgundy. Very disappointing. Seems wrong to ask for a refund from the RSPB so I will donate it to a charity shop and hope someone likes brown!

    Colour not as stated
    This scarf is described and shown as burgundy. It is NOT - it is brown. Had I known this I would not have bought this. The robins are cute, but it would have been a lot nicer with a burgundy or red background. I won't return this but I will be donating to a Charity.
    RSPB response
    Thank you for bringing this to our attention, we are sorry the colour was not as advertised. The colour can vary during the dying process of the organic cotton. We have updated the colour and description of the scarf.
