A light linen scarf will add texture to any outfit! It is meticulously handwoven and has a white stripe and eyelash fringe.
Because of its labour-intensive manufacturing process, linen is considered a luxury textile. Weaving with linen is extremely difficult due to its lack of elasticity, but the end result is a fabric with a natural texture that will last a lifetime. It is one of the world's oldest and strongest fibres, and it is also one of the most environmentally friendly materials because it uses every part of the plant.

Profile of the Artist
Sabahar's goal is to give Ethiopian weavers a place to work that is ethical, sustainable, and appreciative of their culture. These artisans are motivated by Ethiopia's historic weaving traditions to make beautiful textiles from natural fibres of the highest quality. Handspun thread is becoming increasingly rare in today's mechanized textile industry.
Everything is done by hand, from the spinning of the thread to the weaving of the fabric. Rural women use hand spinning as a source of additional income since it is a skill that is typically passed down from mother to daughter (or granddaughter to granddaughter). By acquiring cotton thread made by Ethiopian women in Addis Ababa, Sabahar pays honour to this longstanding heritage. Spinning can be a good source of extra income for women because it is something they can do in their spare time.
Ethiopians have long relied on hand weaving as a primary source of income. The majority of Ethiopian traditional apparel is still woven by hand. A father's knowledge of weaving passes down to his sons, which explains why there are so many male weavers in Ethiopia. Patterns, colours, and designs have advanced in sophistication while processes have stayed mostly consistent over time. On average, a weaver may turn out one to three scarves a day, depending on the complexity of the design.
