With it's large size, wear this versatile piece as a light summer shawl or an autumn scarf. It is meticulously handwoven to perfection and finished with a raw, eyelash fringe. Linen is a luxury textile because it is so labor intensive to produce. It is not elastic, so weaving with linen thread is very difficult, but the end result is a fabric with a natural texture that will last forever. It is one the oldest and strongest fibers in the world and linen is also one of the most sustainable materials because all parts of the plant can be used and nothing is wasted.
Handmade with love in Ethiopia. As with all handwoven textiles, there are slight variations making each piece a work of art and truly one-of-a-kind.
Care: Machine wash in cold water, hang dry and iron. Do not bleach.
