Lalibela tablecloth by Sabahar PLC (ETHIOPIA)
This table cloth is 100% cotton, 40/2 warp and weft threads. The technique of weaving this design (rep weaving) is entirely new for traditional weavers, and so far we only have 2 weavers who can do it. However, we feel strongly that we need to continually design products which will introduce new techniques and designs into the weaving community in Ethiopia. Global competition is high for hand woven products, and only by constant improvement can we be competitive. We gave it the name Lalibela after the famous stone churches of the ancient Ethiopian town of Lalibela. The design reflects these structures in their monochrome colours, and their pillows of stone which have survived through the centuries. Dimensions 140 x 260 cm. Dispatch time 2 weeks.
