A member of the World Fair Trade Organization, Sabahar provides employment for Ethiopian artisans skilled in handcrafting beautiful cotton and silk textiles. Sabahar's Stella shawl showcases the buttery softness of Ethiopian eri silk. Indigenous silk production hails to a centuries-old tradition of importing silk from India, updated as a modern cottage industry. Under Sabahar's guidance, more than 60 Ethiopian families now produce silk, often with proceeds benefiting the women and children of the household.
