Description & Details
This soft and richly textured silk shawl is entirely hand-made in Ethiopia. It is crafted from locally made wild silk (a combination of Eri and Mulberry silk). Natural dyes - many found in the plants and soils of Ethiopia - create vibrant yet delicate colours. The olive colour is made with onion skins and the denim colour with indigo. Konso and Dorze weavers, who are amongst the most skilled in the country, apply their knowledge of the loom, patience and attention to detail to every thread.
Created in 2004, Sabahar aims to preserve and celebrate Ethiopia's ancient craft of hand loom weaving. The company offers fair and stable employment opportunities and extensive trainings for craftsmen to apply their traditional skills to modern fresh designs.
