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. They use natural fibres to make gorgeous textiles, drawing inspiration from Ethiopia's long history of weaving. Handspun thread is becoming increasingly rare in today's mechanized textile industry.
The entire procedure is done by hand, from the thread to the fabric. Rural women use hand spinning to supplement their income because it is a skill they have learned from their mothers. When Sabahar visits Addis Ababa, she makes a point of buying cotton thread that has been spun by a cooperative of local women. 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. Almost all Ethiopian weavers are male since the skill of weaving is passed down from father to son. 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.
