Receive a Hawi necklace FREE when you order a Mechot Throw!

This stylish and cosy throw has been created in Ethiopia by skilled artisans who use a traditional loom to weave locally sourced cotton into a stylish herringbone design, complete with tied fringes. Natural dyes in toasty bronze and white tones complement any home style.

The Hawi necklace is comprised of delicate silver and bronze coloured beads which are made from recycled metals from farmers who collect discarded artillery shells which local villagers transform into beads.  It is oversize in length and can be worn doubled over for a different look. 

Available for a limited time only!!
