Color

These Fair Trade, eco friendly Ethiopian shawls are one of our best sellers. The heavily textured shawls are made from the combination of dark cotton warps and natural, hand spun Eri silk in the weft. The eri silk is a more nubbly and rougher than mulberry silk, resulting in the look of raw silk. The silk is cultivated in southern Ethiopia while the cotton is grown throughout the country. The shawls are woven loosely so one can really see and appreciate the irregularity of the hand spun silk. The two edges are finished with a band of color and hand twisted fringes.

Content

65% silk, 35% cotton. The weft is hand spun, Ethiopian silk from Arba Minch in southern Ethiopia. The warp is dark grey machine spun Ethiopian cotton.
