These luxurious silk shawls are made from hand spun wild Ethiopian silk, which is then hand woven on traditional looms to create these fabulous shawls.
The designs, called Tibeb, are found on many Ethiopian textiles and these are our most traditional Ethiopian shawls.
The silk - Eri Silk- is very different from conventional silk. It has a textured look and feel, and is a naturally occurring "non violent" silk. Hand spinning also creates wonderful texture, and unique feel. The silk is warm in the winter, yet breathable in the summer.
These beautiful shawls come from Sabahar, an Ethiopian company that produces uniquely designed, hand made cotton and silk textiles. Their products are entirely hand made in Ethiopia from natural fibres and are guaranteed "Fair Trade".
