Women in Ethiopia hand spin this gorgeous cotton yarn before it is plied and naturally hand dyed in Rwanda by the ladies of Handspun Hope. Available in a natural color palette found nowhere else in the world.
This project gives over 120 women, most of them widows and orphaned survivors of the Genocide against the Tutsi, dignified employment. Handspun Hope is a certified member of the Fair Trade Federation, which guarantees fair wages and working conditions for the artisans.
The sheep receive meticulous 24-hour care so they will continue producing quality fleeces for the ladies working for Handspun Hope.
Handspun Hope is a sustainable fashion brand committed to ethically-sourced materials and minimal environmental impact.
