Adele recently visited Addis Ababa in Ethiopia. Along with visiting the markets (of course), she spent time with fellow Design Network Africa (DNA) member, Kathy who is the owner and founder of Sabahar.
Sabahar produces beautiful, contemporary textiles for the global market while providing sustainable, respectful and fair employment to Ethiopian artisans. It is the only outfit in Ethiopia that produces its own silk. The silk works were scary but beautiful.
