Making the Coffee Scarf…

We showed you in last week’s #mochaclubexp Webisode the exclusive scarf we’ve created along with fashionABLE… handmade in Ethiopia with our partner Ellilta Products, and dyed with Ethiopian coffee!

Here’s a little step-by-step of the process…

Meanwhile, the coffee beans are roasted & ground by hand.

Then the finished scarves are soaked in big tubs of coffee

After being dyed for about an hour, they’re rinsed and hung on the line to dry…

…and you get the soft, beautiful, finished product!
(because of the inconsistency of dying with coffee there are 2 shades of this scarf — “light roast” & “dark roast”!!)

You can get the scarf for $30 in the Mocha Club Store, or get it for FREE by joining (or inviting a friend to join) Mocha Club as a monthly member!
