      Meet the Artisans

      Hand spinning and weaving are century-old skills in Ethiopia that were once highly respected. However, because of the increased availability of large-scale manufactured textiles from within the country and abroad, this craft is slowly disappearing. 

      The craftsmanship of hand spinning and weaving results in one of the finest textiles in the world. The beauty lies in the culture and creativity that is woven into each unique piece. Every purchase encourages the artisans to preserve the rich textile tradition.

      Fifty percent of the staff is women and about seventy five percent of the management positions are held by women. The artisans are provided fair wages and sustainable employment. They attend training regularly, both to build their capacity in their respective areas of specialization but also to help them better manage their finances, their health and homes.


      Our products will have slight variations in design and size, this is a natural occurrence in handmade goods and one of the many reasons we love them so.

      No two designs will be exactly alike, giving you a lasting one-of-a-kind product to treasure for years to come.

      If you are looking for specific dimensions on a product, please contact us so we can assist in finding the right fit.

      I just received my second order, and I cannot express how happy I am with it. I ordered the long and the short brass wall sconces, candles, and the breathtaking votive candle chandelier. Everything came packaged very nicely and arrived in perfect condition.

      My infant daughter recently spent some time in the ICU and her kantha baby blanket was one of the only things of hers from home that we had with us. It was a source of comfort and kept her warm and swaddled her over the cords for her entire stay. We love Connected Goods and these blankets specifically.
