Versatile fashion meets ethical design with our Queen Taitu shawl in white and silver.

Skilled weavers in Ethiopia used a traditional loom to handcraft this garment from locally-cultivated cotton and silk, dyed with natural ingredients. Adorned with the intricate 'tileb' pattern, woven from handpicked mulberry silk threads, each shawl carries a piece of Ethiopian heritage and culture.

Whether it’s for every day, a special night out, or travel, the Queen Taitu shawl is the perfect accessory to effortlessly bring an outfit to life while also providing lightweight warmth, comfort, and coverage. 

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.
