liveFashionable Genet scarf...at my house

I have posted about the wonderful fashionABLE business before.  An Ethiopian business that empowers women by training them as skilled weavers making gorgeous scarves, see my original post here.  Well this lovely scarf arrived in the post last week, just in time for a few chill winters days in Sydney.  It is a striking black and white design, the winning design from the Alt SLC competion in which 2 of my designs were also finalists, and I though it looked perfect on the oak table on the verandah.

This scarf was woven by Genet and, as with each scarf woven, she has attached a hand written note with a thank you for what she is now ABLE to do through her role at fashionABLE, read more of her story here.



If you read one thing online today make it some of these womens amazing stories of courage and hope, you will be inspired and moved.  fashionABLE aims to create a sustainable business that will help these and other women change their lives forever, so stop by and look at their lovely designs, and warm your heart and your body this winter with a fashionABLE scarf of your own.
