Maraki (ማራኪ Amharic word for “attractive”) stands for beautiful handwoven Ethiopian textiles produced by Ethiopian artisans from locally sourced cotton.
Maraki is one of the few companies in Ethiopia which are combining outstanding design with high product quality. Founded in 2016, it is empowering local craftsmanship and showcasing the beauty of Ethiopian traditional weaving on international markets.
We believe Ethiopian craftsmanship can explore its boundaries of creativity and produce modern designs without loosing its essence. Being a small company, Maraki has the advantage of flexibility. We are offering our partners the possibility to produce custom-designed high quality scarves and gabis in relatively small quantities.
Our head office is conveniently located in Addis Ababa, Bole near Edna Mall. For inquiries, orders and collaborations contact us:
