Surkana and Socotra: The Scarf of Solidarity that Unites
Surkana and Socotra


Surkana supports one of the world's biggest humanitarian emergencies today by helping families affected by war in the city of Yemen: it donates 100% of the proceeds from the Socotra scarf to the Spanish humanitarian organization Solidarios Sin Fronteras

Spring is synonymous with the purchase of scarves, and why not buy one that does good? Surkana is committed to fighting one of the world’s major humanitarian crises by supporting families affected by the war in Yemen. The Socotra scarf’s entire proceeds are donated to the Spanish humanitarian organization Solidarios Sin Fronteras, which provides food, water, and emergency supplies to Yemeni families.

Solidarity and inclusiveness are values that pulse at the heart of Surkana, which has decided to donate 100% of the sales of the scarf of solidarity to the NGO Solidarios sin Fronteras. This organization provides direct humanitarian aid and promotes development in Yemen by providing food, water, and emergency support to families affected by the war, particularly those forced to flee their homes due to bombardment.

The Surkana scarf of solidarity draws inspiration from Socotra, a paradise island in Yemen.

For over a decade, Surkana has collaborated with various organizations to improve the conditions of the most disadvantaged people and build a more inclusive future in which no one is left behind. Among them are Active Africa, Aldeas Infantiles, Chascar, and the Red Cross.

Surkana and Socotra
he solidarity scarf by Surkana, inspired by Socotra Island in Yemen, portrays the landscape, fauna, and vegetation of Socotra, as well as its color palette: orange, yellow, fuchsia, white, burgundy, and red for the blood of the dragon tree, the island’s most emblematic tree. Legend has it that this unique botanical species was born from the blood shed in a battle between an elephant and a dragon, but we now know that its internal resin turns red upon contact with air. Socotra is also known as the Garden of Eden and was called Sukhadhara in ancient Sanskrit, meaning “island of happiness.”
