Traditional Ethiopian Hand Woven Cotton Dress- Afifa (SL)
Traditional Ethiopian Hand Woven Cotton Dress- Afifa
ITEM SHIPS FROM SRI LANKA
Simple, elegant, comfortable, chic and so soft, this is one of our favorite dresses. Handmade in Ethiopia by tribal men where it's customary for the men to do the weaving.
A traditional Ethiopian design with classic Ethiopian embroidery down the middle. This dress is made from raw and unprocessed cotton which is grown in the cotton plantations in the south part of the country where it is hot.
The cotton is hand spooled by the women, no dyes and no chemicals are added. The spooled cotton is then hand woven by the men, including the designed accents with gold acrylic. You will find that the cotton is so luxurious and soft, it's warm and cozy yet cool and breezy. We love the golden color.
Like a kaftan so it can fit many sizes, can be worn with or without the belt.
You will appreciate the beauty but also the integrity of the craftsmanship.
There is a slight damage on the upper left shoulder, a little burn mark that was sewn up by the artist from the Dorze tribe. The dress has been discounted to compensate for the flaw.
