This oversized, unisex scarf is made of pure Ethiopian cotton. It features a classic stripe pattern and is finished with hand knotted fringe. Inspired by the ancient weaving traditions of Ethiopia, the artisans create exquisite textiles using natural fibers. From the spinning of the thread to the weaving of the fabric, the process is done entirely by hand. The skill of hand spinning is passed down from mother to daughter and most rural women spin at their homes for extra income. The beauty of handspun thread is a rare commodity in our quickly changing world of mechanized textile factories. The art of weaving is passed down from father to son, thus almost all weavers in Ethiopia are men. The techniques have not changed much for centuries, but the patterns, colors and designs have become increasingly sophisticated. Fair Trade + handmade with love in Ethiopia.
