ED’s Popular Scarves Going At $20 A Pop… All Sold Out At ZITF
Replicas of the national flag themed scarves now famous for being donned by president ED for all occasions and costumes were a hit at the ongoing ZITF.
The scarves which were going at $20 a pop proved to be on demand by the people. One of the ladies at the stand said the scarves were picked up as the trade fair began.
“The scarves are finished. Only one is left for display purposes as the rest were quickly taken up by the many businesspeople here. The next batch of scarves will come to Bulawayo on Saturday,” said the woman, who declined to be named.
Scores of men and women were spotted donning the colourful scarves at the ZITF with more coming in at the stand to buy some for themselves.
The scarves, a brain child of Celia Rukato, the founder of Harare-based textile company, Chjaa Enterprises Private Limited had been in circulation for three years.
However, they gained popularity after worn by the President and his delegation in Davos, Switzerland at the World Economic Forum in January and now at many functions.
