Ethiopian Weavers of Addis Ababa
In the capital city of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa, a talented group of spinners and weavers hand loom exquisite natural fiber textiles. Employing a longstanding and rich traditional art form, our artisan partners spin and weave 100% locally grown environmentally friendly high quality fibers. The pieces are then washed and accented with AZO free dyes.
Each artisan who joins the group is ensured that her or his craft will supports the health, education, and economic stability of their families. Through personal guidance, they are trained/educated in their craft and empowered to succeed in all platforms. The artisan group is even making innovative steps to ensure that each one of their processes is environmentally friendly through staff training, water recycling systems, biogas, and solar heating for water and composting!
