Receive a pair of Selome earrings FREE when you order a Maret Shawl!

Skilled weavers in Ethiopia used a traditional loom to lovingly handcraft this garment from 100% locally cultivated silk and cotton thread. Dyed with native plants, this Maret poncho has a subtle green hue.

Our Selome earrings feature silver and brass hued beads in a long teardrop shape.  The beads are made from recycled metals provided by farmers who collect discarded artillery shells which local villagers transform into beads.  

Available for a limited time only.
