Stylish Traditional Ethiopian Netela (2024)

The Traditional Ethiopian Netela is a scarf made from two layers of cotton which are thin and delicate to the consistency of gauze. It has colorful edges known as tibébé which partly frame the faces of the wearers.

The Netela is worn by both Ethiopian and Eritrean women of all ages, both young and old around their hairstyles and dresses. The scarves which are similar to a white veil are worn as part of their religious cultures to church and public gatherings.
