We combine locally-produced eri silk with other silk from Uganda and India and Ethiopian cotton to produce a range of products. All of our products are individually made by skilled hands- hand spinning on drop spindles and spinning wheels, hand woven on traditional looms and naturally dyed with flowers, trees, insects and plants.

We export to more than 15 countries and sell in Ethiopia.

We create positive work opportunities within Ethiopia. Sabahar encourages high-quality traditional skills as a means to increase reliable income for households.
