HANDMADE IN ETHIOPIA

These super soft and absorbent towels have been woven by hand in Ethiopia using hand-spun 100% cotton thread.

Story

Artisans hand spin the natural cotton fibres, pot dye the thread in small batches and weave the towels on traditional handlooms. Handmade thread makes the towels extremely soft and absorbent. The dyes are all AZO-free and REACH certified, and all towels are WFTO Fair Trade.

The core mission of this unique collective from Ethiopia is to empower and elevate the people they employ at every level. A monitored member of the World Fair Trade Organization, this group provides a sustainable income for 120 people, 50% of whom are women. Staff members who are interested in going to school get time off to do so, and employees receive pensions, paid vacation, maternity leave and medical coverage––all practically unheard of for similar employment opportunities in Ethiopia.
