A linen scarf? Really?

We absolutely think so! When customers ponder a linen scarf or wrap they can jump to the conclusion that it will be a wrinkled mess in no time. I can honestly report that I have been wearing the Telba linen wraps for a couple of months and they are fantastic! The linen isn’t coarse or stiff and becomes softer the more I wear them. I often have someone ask if they are really 100% linen. They have that certain look of linen that I love for this time of the year. But really stand up to my stuffing and tucking and look lovely. They can be hand washed and ironed,  but I haven’t reached that point yet. It is wrap size; a generous 27″ x 78″ which is so versatile. Can be a scarf or used as a shawl/wrap.

The Mariam scarf is 18″ x 78,” beautifully light with bountiful body. And is offered in scrumptious colors of taupe, adobe (on model), flax (blue), and fern green.

Our Summer wraps are your go-to item

I love the summer morning air here in Colorado. Warm days finish with cool evenings, so I always have one of our fabulous wraps tucked in my bag. Or I wear one as a scarf until needed to wrap around my shoulders. They are also essential for this time of year when the temperatures in restaurants, stores, air planes and theaters are downright chilly. We have many styles to choose from. The Gelila (above) is 90% lightweight Ethiopian cotton with a 10% touch of silk.  The Ari (below) is 100% lightweight Ethiopian cotton. Both add that just-right amount of warmth to take you from sunshine to moonlight. 

The Judith and Timket 100% Ethiopian Cotton wraps are a bit heavier and some of my personal favorites. I often use them as a small blanket on the plane when my seat mates have their air vents open wide.Our wraps are a versatile size. 24″-27″ wide and 78″ long, and they can be worn as scarves or shawls. Our entire collection is hand washable. Check out all of our scarves and wraps on our website.

Summertime Must Haves

Summertime is nearly here. That means picnics, time on the beach or lake, vacations by car and plane. Remember to pack your Woven Promises towels and hand towels. Doesn’t the Rainbow style just say “take me to the beach”?

Our Rainbow towel and hand towel are back for the 2017 spring and summer season and are available in three colors. Choose from our lovely natural towel with 9 multi-colored stripes, natural with blues, greens and turquoise stripes or natural with reds, pinks, and deep magenta. They are perfect for a day at the beach, on the boat at the lake, as a covering for the picnic table, to wrap as a sarong, or to use as a shawl or blanket when the evening cools things off. Our generously sized towel is soft and absorbent, and you will love to wrap up in it after your bath or shower. Our hand towels are not only great to use in the bath or powder room, but are wonderful kitchen towels too. They also are handy for so many reasons so be sure to tuck a couple into the picnic basket or beach bag. Made of high-quality Ethiopian cotton, machine wash and dry.

Take me on vacation!

Our don’t-travel-without-it towel folds up neatly to tuck in your suitcase or back pack for a vacation or day at the beach. These towels are incredibly multi-purpose. For the last 9 years Penny and I have not gone anywhere without one. In Africa we use our towel to wrap up in during the long flight. We use them as blankets to sit on. As shawls on cool evenings. A towel and hand towel are used everyday in our hotel bathroom. Because they are absorbent, generously sized and dry so quickly, they are our go-to travel pieces. Below is a photo of our Omo towel/hand towel collection. Go to products and click on towels to see all of our offerings. Your customers will treasure them.

Omo towel and hand towels in gold, blue, sea foam green, gray, tangerine and raspberry.

Beautiful, sustainable Linen scarves and wraps are new this season

We are thrilled to offer this line of linen scarves and wraps for the 2017 spring/summer season. Our fine linen is sourced from Eastern Europe and hand woven into light and lovely scarves and wraps that have bountiful body. Give us a call or email us to place your order.

Linen is a luxury fabric because it is so labor intensive to produce. It is not at all elastic so weaving with linen thread is very difficult. But the end result is a product that will last forever with a natural texture that is stunning.

Mariam Scarf in 4 colors. 18″x78″ with eyelash fringe.

Telba Wrap in 3 colors. 27″x78″ of fabulous.

Rosa scarf in white linen with navy, soft gray or pale pink. Eyelash fringe finishes this lovely piece. 18″x78″
