Linen is a luxury textile because it is so labor intensive to produce. It is not elastic, so weaving with linen thread is very difficult, but the end result is a fabric with a natural texture that will last forever. It is one the oldest and strongest fibers in the world and linen is also one of the most sustainable materials because all parts of the plant can be used and nothing is wasted.

  • Material: 100% Linen
  • Measurements: L 78" x W 28"
  • Handmade with love in Ethiopia
  • Care: Machine wash in cold water, hang dry and iron. Do not bleach.
  • As with all handwoven textiles, there are slight variations making each piece a work of art and truly one-of-a-kind.

 

Artisan Profile

Sabahar strives to create respectful, ethical and sustainable work opportunities for artisans in Ethiopia and showcase the talents of their weavers to the world. Inspired by the ancient weaving traditions of Ethiopia, they create exquisite textiles using natural fibers. The beauty of handspun thread is a rare commodity in our quickly changing world of mechanized textile factories. 

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. Honoring this tradition, Sabahar purchases hand spun cotton thread from a network of women throughout Addis Ababa. As most spinning is done during free time, it is a way to support women with supplemental income.

Hand weaving has been a way of life for centuries in Ethiopia. Even today, almost all of the traditional Ethiopian clothing is made on hand looms. 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. A weaver can produce one to three scarves in a day depending on the level of detail of the design.
