Handmade in Ethiopia with the mission to create economic partnerships through support of entrepreneurial efforts of talented, economically struggling people in Ethiopia. Each piece passes through the hands of over 20 artisans and provides income and value for individuals in one of the poorest countries in the world. They are able to support their families, given access to health care, transportation and a savings account.
Handwoven with natural cotton that is spun by hand and hand-dyed using natural materials such as marigolds, acacia and indigo. With every item purchased with us, a tree is planted in partnership with the National Forest Foundation.
The first weavers in Ethiopia travelled with the “moveable courts” and set up their looms on the verandas of the homes of noblemen. Today Ethiopia has garnered the reputation to have some of the most skilled weavers in the world. Weavers used to have a marginalized status in Ethiopia, however today weaving provides a steady income and the skill of talented weavers is highly in demand.
