Ethiopia, Sabahar, Nomad Throw
Product name: Nomad Throw in navy and cacao
Type of product: Blanket
Description (story of the item):
The Nomad throw is made using traditional textile skills in Ethiopia - hand spinning cotton on a drop spindle, hand weaving on double shaft looms, and hand stitching to join two pieces of cloth. The throw is a great travel companion since it can also be worn as a shawl, or alternatively used as a spontaneous picnic tablecloth.
Traditionally, weavers made solid-coloured blankets and clothing with undyed warps, but Sabahar has introduced contemporary colours and patterns. The weavers who produce these throws do so in their own homes, with all family members involved in the warp preparation, bobbin winding, and cotton spinning. The hand-spun cotton weft produces a lovely soft feel and breathable warmth. The bright colours stay vibrant after years of normal washing. The throw is finished with our traditional twisted fringes, each one braided and knotted by hand. Product will be shipped within 4 weeks of order placement.
Materials: 100% Ethiopian cotton (40/2 warp and hand-spun weft)
