This (napkin) collection handmade of luxurious Ethiopian cotton features exquisite textures and patterns with natural accents designed to serve as a beautiful counterpoint to mass-produced, modern living. These napkins use leno weaving techniques. Leno weave (also called Gauze weave) is a weave in which two warp yarns are twisted around the weft yarns to provide a strong yet sheer fabric.
Made from 100% locally sourced organic hand-spun cotton. Woven by a small group of talented Ethiopian artisans nurtured by the design guidance of Creative Women. Dyed with AZO-free color. This design can be folded in over eight different ways for an ever changing dinnerware setting.
The more it’s washed, the softer it gets! Machine wash and dry.
Sabahar creates exquisite Ethiopian cotton and silk textiles. Artisans spin the natural fibers on drop spindles, hand dye the thread and weave the fabric on traditional looms. Sabahar currently employs 50 people at its workshop in Addis Ababa and engages another 100 artisans who spin and weave in their own homes or in cooperatives around the city. Sabahar provides you the beauty of Ethiopia while supporting fair and sustainable employment for artisans.
