Sea Glass Ethiopian Cotton Gabi

Swahili Modern


  • This fine cotton gabi, in a fresh color reminiscent of sea glass, is woven from handspun organic cotton by the artisans of Sammy Ethiopia. First, artisans weave two wide panels, then hand-stitch them together to create one expansive textile. Traditionally worn 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 approximately 115"L x 58"W. Due to the handmade nature of this item, size may vary. 

    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.
