Ethiopian artisans hand-weave organic, locally-sourced cotton into two wide panels, then add a hand-stitched center seam to create an expansive gabi body shawl. Worn traditionally in pure white for religious services, a gabi can serve in many ways, as apparel, a throw blanket, a luxe tablecloth, or even tied as a baby carrier.
You'll find many ways to use this heirloom-quality handwoven textile!
