Our warm and cosy Kaba Cape is handwoven on a traditional loom using Ethiopian cotton. A versatile piece that can be wrapped around as a shawl, buttoned to become a jacket or worn as a poncho. It is also reversible. The buttons are made from locally sourced horn, a bi-product from the meat industry. The button holders are crocheted by the teenage daughters of our weavers.
