Because of the labour-intensive nature of the production process, linen is considered a premium cloth. Given that linen is not elastic, weaving with it is incredibly tough; nonetheless, the end product is a fabric that has a natural feel and will last a lifetime. It is one of the world's oldest and strongest fibres, and linen is also one of the most environmentally friendly fabrics available, as it makes use of every part of the plant that may be used.

Profile of the Artist
Sabahar's purpose is to provide respectful, ethical, and long-term job possibilities for Ethiopian craftsmen while also showcasing the abilities of its weavers to the rest of the world, according to their website. They use natural fibres to create gorgeous textiles that are inspired by Ethiopia's historic weaving traditions, which they then sell. Especially in today's quickly changing world of mechanized textile factories, the beauty of hand-spun thread is becoming increasingly scarce.
Using only hand tools, the entire process is completed by hand, beginning with the thread spinning and ending with the weaving of the fabric. Hand spinning is a technique that is passed down from mother to daughter, and the majority of rural women spin at home to augment their family's living expenses. With the purchase of hand-spun cotton thread from a network of women in Addis Ababa, Sabahar pays homage to this legacy and honours their efforts. Spinning can be a potential form of extra income for women due to the fact that the vast majority of it is done during leisure time.
Handweaving has been a part of Ethiopian culture for hundreds of years. Almost all traditional Ethiopian apparel is still made on handlooms, which are still in use today. Weaving is a skill that is passed down from father to son, which explains why men account for the vast majority of weavers in Ethiopia. Despite the fact that the techniques have stayed essentially the same over the years, the patterns, colours, and designs have become increasingly complex. A weaver can produce anywhere from one to three scarves every day, depending on the complexity of the design.
