If you go to Addis Ababa you have to find a driver that knows where Sabahar is located. It is such an amazing store and the grounds are gorgeous. They sell everything from jewelry to blankets. I always stop there when I visit to load up on more goodies to bring home. Amazingly enough, everything I have purchased over the years has held up beautifully. We use our blankets and I definitely wear my scarves and not a one has unraveled or torn. They make some of their products on location, but also hire weavers around Ethiopia that have looms at home. Here are a few images from my recent trip followed by my new blanket and pillows that are now my favorites.
i love seeing the looms and threads. textiles hold a special place in my heart. are you taking pre-orders for your next visit? 😉
