Accessorise in style!
This pure linen Mariam scarf is beautifully textured, finished with an eyelash fringe and lays beautifully. They are hand woven by the wonderfully skilled weavers, finishers and dyers of Sabahar in Ethiopia. The lovely scarves should last a lifetime and get better and better with age!
