Kwezi Maxi Lace Cardigan in Ethiopian Cotton
Everyone needs a lace cardigan in their lives and our Kwezi Lace Cardigan is the most beautiful one we've ever seen! The long, romantic and comfortable silhouette lends itself to a year-round closet staple, adding high-fashion flare to any outfit. Wear it with jeans, a dress or jumper. The light-weight knit of this design is perfect for warmer climates. Shown in Rich Eucalyptus but available in any shade from our natural palette.
This lovely cardigan takes 96 hours for one woman to knit by hand. This time is not inclusive of the laborious task of creating the yarn and hand dyeing it organically. Please allow 8 weeks for the delivery of this custom-created design.

Our Ethiopian cotton is sourced from a women's cooperative in Addis Ababa. There, the ladies hand spin cotton on drop spindles. The cotton is then imported into Rwanda where the women working for Handspun Hope ply and dye the yarn.
Handspun Hope is a sustainable fashion brand committed to ethically-sourced materials and minimal environmental impact.
