Kidist usually goes by the nickname "Kuku". She is Sabahar's master seamstress and has been working at the company since 2006. She does all the sewing samples, complicated sewing and new products for the company. Before working at Sabahar, she did embroidery for "Young Life", an NGO in Ethiopia. Kidist finished 10th grade and then did a 6-month sewing course. She is also trained to teach sign language and work with the deaf (Kidist is deaf herself). She is hard working and dedicated to Sabahar and is always able to tackle the sewing problems that we throw at her.
