Crafted with care and a commitment to ethical practices, this luxurious cape embodies both style and conscience.

Skilled weavers from Ethiopia used a traditional loom to weave thick, locally sourced cotton into this sophisticated burgundy design. The back features chain stitching, a technique still used by Ethiopian women to sew together their ceremonial shawls.

It’s the perfect lightweight layer of warmth to go over an outfit in winter, or on a chilly plane.

Feel good about your purchase knowing its maker is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization which creates respectful, ethical, and sustainable work opportunities for artisans in Ethiopia.
