Ethiopia, Sabahar, Mechot Grey Blanket
Product name: Mechot Blanket in grey
Type of product: Cotton Blanket
Description (story of the item):
The Mechot throw is beautifully handwoven in a classic herringbone design and makes a simple, but sophisticated addition to any living room or bedroom. This pure Ethiopian cotton blanket is heavy enough to keep you cosy on a chilly night.
This is a new product for Sabahar and for our weavers. It is a good example of how product diversification is possible when technologies and skills are upgraded. It is made on 4 harness floor looms using only 40/2 cotton yarns for warp and weft. The softness is achieved by ensuring a perfect sett - the relationship between warp and weft threads. When we first started experimenting with this concept of manipulating the sett and using machine-spun cotton for the weft, our weavers were sceptical; however, over time and with many trials, it has been exciting to see how our weavers proudly achieved the drape that we were looking for. We feel it has been one of our greatest successes in terms of the introduction of new weaving ideas. Product will be shipped within 4 weeks of order placement.
