Maragiya in Addis Ababa – A Rising Fashion Capital!

Though we sell primarily home decor baskets and handcrafted accent pieces for your home and office, we love all things art and lifestyle oriented. Our blog reflects our love of travel, fashion and artisan design, decor, healthy living, wellness and creative lifestyles.

This year, we took a special trip to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia in order to visit a city not normally on the roster of tour companies. A self-directed tour of the city was planned not only to experience its local food, history, and culture but to learn about this burgeoning fashion centre of Africa. The adventure included visits to local fashion boutiques of local, independent fashion designers, artisan collectives to observe handcrafting in action, and local markets for traditional cultural finds. Please see and enjoy some photos of our adventure.
