Sabahar is an Ethiopian company that produces uniquely designed, handmade cotton and silk textiles. Their products are entirely handmade in Ethiopia from natural fibers. They are passionate about preserving and celebrating the rich weaving tradition of Ethiopia combined with the desire to create respectful and ethical work opportunities for marginalized people. They spin the cotton into a thread on drop spindles and use spinning wheels to spin Eri silk into thread. They dye the thread in small batches using environmentally friendly dyes and weave the fabric on traditional handlooms and make the fringes using a twist technique that has been practiced for centuries. Their artisans work in their homes and at their workshop. More than twenty sets of hands touch each product they sell. Such intensive production practices enable them to create and sustain significant employment for artisans who may otherwise leave their trade to find more reliable work. They create positive work opportunities, with an emphasis on employment for women. Sabahar is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization.
