A Gabi blanket is a cultural emblem of Ethiopia. Typically worn draped over the head or around the body by both men and women, the Gabi is also used as lining for baby beds, mattresses, tents, and in lieu of heaters.
Our Kofi Gabi is smaller than the traditional size and can be worn as a lightweight shawl or scarf, or added as a pop of color in the home.
