History of our little company.
Hi, I am Tsion
I am one of the co-founders of Wolfaby. I created this company based on what I love the most “Making cute things at home”. I am a mother myself and had plenty of time whilst I was pregnant, so I started to learn knitting from my grandma. Finding personalized items in Ethiopia is hard and many other new mothers around me were interested in what I created and started ordering my products. I am married to a manufacturing engineer so, together, we started making quality, perfect fitting, cute baby stuff and decided to call it Wolf of Abyssinia simply translated as “small, exotic, and loyal. Since then. Wolfaby has grown each day, adding new products from time to time, as we try to reach out to as many children as possible around the globe.
Wolfaby is an Ethiopian origin brand that designs contemporary baby clothing and associated products. Wolfaby makes handmade baby booties, blankets, and knitwear using “the artisan way”. What makes Wolfaby unique is all the products are made to order and not mass-produced. Every product is cut and stitched individually making every product unique and detailed. Wolfaby is a business built on sustainability and ethics from product development to making products for new generations with an ethical fashion mindset at an early age.
Wolfaby is driven from the first words of Wolf of Abyssinia meaning ቀይ ቀበሮ (Ky kebero), ዋልጌ (Walgie), Simien jackal or Simien fox, or generally Red fox of Ethiopia. This specific bread of fox is indigenous for the high lands of Ethiopia it is listed as endangered by the IUCN. Even though it’s a bit hard to pronounce “Wolfaby” in Amharic the word is Ethiopic and we put mining behind it. The red fox is a native small bread of fox indicating we have started small in Ethiopia, a fox is a loyal and ambitious same us our commitment to our customer and products. The look and glamour show our efforts for building the most cutest and beautiful products.

Wolfaby is more than a brand. Building a community of mothers is our priority. Wolfaby is currently collaborating with Ethiopian mother bloggers and vloggers into building the biggest mothers community around many platforms with diversified mothers working toward a common goal. We are also working on blogging site answering unanswered questions of moms in Ethiopia. Discussing and working on problems that we can solve only when we are together. Shortly, our company is in the plan of building a foundation focused on solving the major issues of babies and kids born and raised in the streets of Addis Ababa by training their mother to fit in the economy and raise a baby with a better future.
Over 267 million preschool-age children and over 568 million school-age children live in areas where soil parasites are intensively transmitted and require treatment and preventive interventions. More than 1.5 billion people, or 24% of the world’s population, are infected with soil-transmitted Disease. Shoes play a major part in our society especially in 3rd world countries where shoe access is limited and expensive. Making shoes easily reachable, inexpensive, long-lasting, and decomposable in the future at Wolfaby, plays a major role in building a better place. By research and development through our foundations, we are working to lower the numbers of kids suffering from soil-transmitted diseases.
