Ethiopian Silk & Cotton Scarf with Copper Dashes

Swahili Modern


  • This exquisitely handcrafted scarf marries Ethiopian cotton and silk with copper and white accent lines woven in. It's completely handmade—from the locally sourced cotton and silk produced in Ethiopia, to the spinning of the thread and the weaving of the fabric.

    Natural materials such as leaves, flowers, and coffee, along with textile dyes, are used to produce the gorgeous colors. This black scarf is accented with lines and dashes of white and copper, and finished with a hand-knotted fringe.

    Each fair trade scarf is 90% Ethiopian cotton and 10% Ethiopian silk and measures 72"L x 16"W.

  • Sabahar is an Ethiopian company that produces uniquely designed, hand made cotton and silk textiles that are entirely handcrafted from natural fibers grown and processed in Ethiopia.

    Kathy Marshall, a Canadian by birth who has lived in Ethiopia over 20 years, founded Sabahar in 2004. Her passion for preserving and celebrating the rich weaving tradition of Ethiopia, combined with her desire to create respectful and ethical work opportunities for marginalized people have laid the foundation for the company.
