Stunning lightweight silk & cotton shawl handmade in Ethiopia using locally cultivated silk thread and fine Ethiopian cotton. Dyed using local plants and herbs.
The shawl was woven on a traditional loom, the same style that has been used for centuries. The 'tileb' design is a revered, uniquely Ethiopian design. The artisans hand pick the mulberry silk threads to create this intricate design.
The result is a beautifully soft, stunning shawl fit for a Queen. Possibly the most beaufiul piece you will ever wear.
Hand wash in cold water. Iron. Do not bleach.
10% silk, 90% cotton.
