The corona pandemic was just beginning when we embarked on a research trip through Ethiopia – a journey of discovery that showed us the diverse handicraft techniques and the traditional use of natural materials in rural Ethiopia.
In a nutshell: Ethiopia is very special and extraordinary! Own time calculation, own calendar, own language with own writing.
For your orientation: The country is about three times the size of Germany and about 100 million inhabitants. Depending on the source, there are between 80 and 120 different ethnic groups with as many different languages in Ethiopia, and it is questionable whether anywhere else there is a similar diversity of ethnic groups so close together.
