Plum Handspun Ethiopian Cotton Gabi

Swahili Modern

ETT1C

  • The artisans of Sammy Ethiopia weave organic cotton into two wide panels then hand-stitch them together to create this expansive gabi textile. Worn traditionally in pure white for religious services, a gabi can serve in many ways—as a wrap or shawl, a throw blanket, a tablecloth, or even tied as a baby carrier.

    You'll find many reasons to love this heirloom-quality handwoven textile!

    Measures 103"L x 48"W. Due to the handmade nature of this item, size will vary slightly. 

    Care instructions: Hand wash with mild soap. Hang dry.

  • The Sammy Ethiopia brand links the artisan skills of one of Africa’s most ancient civilizations with American and European fashion know-how. The result is unique contemporary style that has already gathered fans from New York to Tokyo. A wealth of craft skills known in Ethiopia for thousands of years are applied to a style-forward range of fashion and home accessories to suit current global tastes. Collaborating with community organizations and cooperatives, Sammy Ethiopia creates employment to some of the world’s most marginalized people in and around Addis Ababa.
