‘asunsti’ has brought to you this unique shawl was made in Ethiopia by Sabahar, a member of the World Fair Trade Organisation, and one which supports and trains artisans, thus making a positive impact on their lives. 50% of Sabahar’s workers are women.

Inspired by ancient weaving traditions, this shawl was lovingly hand made using 100% Australian wool. Artisans spin the natural fibres on drop spindles, hand dye the thread and weave the fabric on traditional looms. Sabahar  just started working with wool in 2016.   Whilst there are many sheep in Ethiopia, unfortunately the quality of their wool is only appropriate for carpets. Therefore, Sabahar imports cruelty- free Merino wool from Australia, which is processed in India.

Irregularities are unique to hand made products.
