As we enter the annual lull that is the stretch before the thaw, a natural impulse might be to stock up on spring-worthy scarves. Neck drapings, shoulder wraps and large swaths of fabric have become very trendy as of late. In a quotidian effort to combat the mundane and expected in subtly luxurious ways, we suggest a turn to handcrafted, one-of-a-kind goods.

Below are two scarves from Addis Scarves, an infant company that is working to connect Ethiopian weavers with distributors all around the world, in an effort to contribute to the education of the Ethiopian people. The scarves are ethereal, luminous and beautiful.
