For Mother’s Day this year I received a beautiful limited edition fashionABLE scarf from ONE because I am a member of the ONE Moms advisory board and in the summer of 2011 I traveled with its ONE Moms on the inaugural trip to Africa when we went to Kenya.
In a trip to Ethiopia last year the ONE Moms visited the fashionABLE headquarters and met the Ethiopian women who make the scarves. They wrote great posts about their visit and about the ways in which fashionABLE helps women achieve a level of self-sufficiency for themselves and their families.
When I traveled to India last month my Genet scarf was always by my side and came in handy on six freezing cold international flights and in our hotel room when I couldn’t figure out how to use the thermostat and it was frigid every night. Even today at home whenever I get cold I always always wrap up in my gorgeous Genet scarf. 100% cotton, my scarf is wonderfully comfortable and is quite large – you can really wrap up in it.
At $65 you can use the Genet scarf in many different ways. In fact, here is a great post about four ways you can wear the scarf.
Last year I am happy that I was able to visit Ethiopia myself. It is a gorgeous country with beautiful, kind people. It’s a shame that so much of what people remember about Ethiopia is starving children with flies in their eyes. That couldn’t be further from the current state of Ethiopia.
