Combatting the heat of the sub-Saharan sun requires a combination of appropriate clothing and adequate hydration. Wearing Ethiopian dresses allows you to stay cool no matter how hard the sun is beating down. Traditionally, these dresses are made from shemma, a material constructed using long strips of cotton. As a material that gently draws sweat away from the body, it is ideal for combatting dehydration. The way each dress billows out at the waist allows it to hang loosely, providing you more comfort in hot conditions. Thanks to the hand weaving that takes place during the production process, each dress is unique. To complement the delicate cotton fabric, many dressmakers also feature embroidery and patterns, allowing you to choose a dress with a little flare for special occasions. When choosing traditional Ethiopian dresses for weddings and other formal engagements, combine yours with gold bracelets to complete the look. Whether you are looking for an everyday dress or something for celebratory purposes, you can find what you need among the large inventory on eBay.
