Woven in two wide panels, then hand-stitched with a center seam, organic Ethiopian cotton is used to create this expansive gabi body shawl or throw. Finished with hand-knotted fringe on 2 ends. Gabis are traditionally worn in pure white, but this deep peacock blue is rich and striking. 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!
