Handwoven in Ethiopia using time-honored weaving traditions and AZO-free dyes. All of the dyeing is done in small batches at the workshop as the artisans work to rekindle the tradition of natural dye in Ethiopia. 

The best towels out there? We think so! There are seriously soo many uses. The lightweight, quick-drying design allows you to pack them in minimal space and makes them the perfect travel towel. We love them on the plane, at the beach, on a picnic, take it as a wrap, or use them to snuggle a little one on a chilly night. And of course, they are truly gorgeous in the bathroom!

This collection is completely handmade of hand-spun and hand-dyed cotton. The Ethiopian cotton adds a uniquely rich texture that will continue to soften and become more absorbent with each wash/dry.

  • 37 x 72"
  • 100% cotton
  • machine wash and dry beautifully
  • sold individually

       

      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.

      Washes up so soft and absorbent.

      I find these absolutely beautiful. After washing, they become fluffier, very soft, like flannel, and perfect to dry off.

      More than just a towel

      I love this beautiful rustic yet soft towel that I see more like a blanket or a cover for my lanai chairs. Getting another two or three to make this the soft cool yet cozy motif out there!

      Soft, Versatile Towel

      I love that this towel is handmade and that the artisans are paid fair wages. My family is trying to buy more quality and sustainable items and this definitely supports that. The towel itself has nice details and is soft to the touch.

      This is STUNNING! Y'all have done it again! I am so impressed with your products and the artisans you partner with. These products are natural, beautiful, and unique. They hit on trends but also beautifully depict those that hand-make them. No questions, I just wanted you to know I am grateful to have found your shop! :)

      My experience with Connected Goods has been nothing short of exceptional. Having had the pleasure of exploring a variety of their homewares and collections, I wholeheartedly recommend purchasing from them. The glassware, walnut utensils, and table linens have been standout favorites for me. The glassware, in particular, is unique and seamlessly complements a variety of tastes. The attention to detail and quality craftsmanship evident in each piece make them a delightful addition to any home. I cannot recommend Connected Goods enough for their curated selection and commitment to offering products that not only meet but exceed expectations. Whether for personal use or as thoughtful gifts, their homewares consistently add a touch of elegance and functionality to any space.

Everything is beautiful and a work of art, including their brooms. The customer service is exceptional as well. I feel supported with every interaction. I will continue to support such a heart centered business that makes the world more beautiful.

      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.

      Connected Goods is truly a personal, Family-Feeling Company. From beginning to the end of a transaction, and everything in between, Connect Goods Customer Service representatives are accessible, friendly, flexible and, most importantly, kind and understanding. I highly respect their business model of putting both their crafts-people and customers first and foremost, as well as going the extra mile to assure customer satisfaction, and feel-good future purchasing experiences.
