As with all handwoven textiles, there are slight variations making each piece a work of art and truly one-of-a-kind.
Wear it as a light summer shawl or an autumn scarf thanks to its extra-large size. Finished with a raw eyelash fringe, it's painstakingly handwoven to perfection. This ivory scarf is available in your choice of three different stripe colours.
Because it takes a long time and a lot of effort to make, linen is considered a luxury fabric. While the lack of elasticity makes it difficult to weave, the end result is a durable fabric with an organic texture. As one of the world's oldest and most durable fibres, linen is also one of the most environmentally friendly because the entire plant is utilized and nothing goes to waste.

Sabahar's mission is to provide artisans in Ethiopia with fair, ethical, and long-term employment opportunities while also showcasing the country's world-class weavers. Beautiful textiles made from natural fibres are inspired by Ethiopia's ancient weaving traditions. With the advent of mechanized textile factories, the art of hand-spun thread is becoming increasingly rare.
The entire process is done by hand, from the spinning of the thread to the weaving of the fabric. It is common for rural women to make an additional living by spinning at home with the help of their mothers. To keep with the custom, Sabahar buys cotton thread made by local women in Addis Abeba. Spinning is a good way for women to earn some extra money because most people do it in their spare time.
Ethiopians have long practised hand weaving as a way of life. Most traditional Ethiopian clothing is still woven by hand, even today. It is customary in Ethiopia for weaving to be passed down from father to son. Throughout the centuries, the methods have remained largely unchanged, but the motifs, colours, and designs used to create them have become increasingly complex. One to three scarves can be made by a weaver in a single day, depending on the level of detail.
