.give one win one - and going to Sabahar.

Hi There.  We have another giveaway for you today but first the winner from yesterday is......


Congrats!  I am sending out all packages together on Monday :)


Today I want to show you the beauty that is Sabahar!  If you have been to Ethiopia and not been to Sabahar then you are missing out!  Sabahar is a fair-trade company that produces silk products through the reproduction of silk worms.

the cocoon that is silk!

This is done through a long process, but the results are absolutely stunning!  I am sure that this is one of the prettiest places we were at in Ethiopia.  Since the process is really long - I am not going to explain it, but just show you the pictures instead.  To read about the process go here.

finished products - I may have bought a few as gifts....they are gorgeous!!!

The thing I love about Sabahar, besides its obvious beauty, is the fact that they employ around 100 workers!  I love knowing that we bought a product that will help the people of Ethiopia directly!
