About Us

Welcome to the home of The Kangaroo Girls™, makers of the Original Kangaroo Scarf with Pockets ©.

Founded by two Artists, The Kangaroo Girls is a local community oriented cottage industry based in Taos, New Mexico.

Our scarves with pockets are all sewn in Northern New Mexico. Many of them are sewn by home seamstresses here in Taos County. Our original selection of scarves provide a garment that has a purpose in both fashion and utility. We proudly bear a “Made in the USA” label.

We’ve selected an array of soft to the touch fabrics to choose from, in Mid to Heavy Weight Fleece, Chenille Tapestries, Velvets, Soft Corduroy, Bamboo Fleece, and Eco-Fleece.

From our perspective, “…one can never have enough pockets”, and the Kangaroo Scarf© is just the solution.

One of our goals is to benefit as many people as possible with our product. Sustainability is a major focus and commitment of the Kangaroo Girls.

  • We package our scarves in environmentally friendly bags (Biodegradable).
  • All our scrap fabric is donated to children’s and elder’s art programs locally here in Taos.
  • A portion of our sales is contributed to www.kiva.org and related organizations that provide the seed money for women starting their own businesses around the world.

Thanks for visiting The Kangaroo Girls and we hope you enjoy your browsing and shopping experience with us.
