Fetil is a traditional Ethiopian dress worn by both men and women in the Gondar region. It is a versatile and elegant garment that holds cultural significance.


Fetil is typically made from finely woven cotton or silk, known as shema. The fabric is often adorned with intricate embroidery, beadwork, or appliqué.


For men, fetil is a long, flowing robe that reaches down to the ankles. It has wide sleeves and a high collar, and is often belted at the waist.

For women, fetil is a long, loose dress that can be worn with or without a sash. It has a square neckline and short sleeves, and is often decorated with colorful embroidery and beadwork.


Fetil is available in a variety of colors, including white, cream, beige, brown, and black. White fetil is considered the most formal and is often worn for special occasions such as weddings and religious ceremonies.

Cultural Significance:

Modern Adaptations:

In recent years, fetil has been adapted into more contemporary designs while still preserving its traditional elements. Modern fetil dresses and robes can be found in a wider range of colors and fabrics, and may incorporate modern embroidery and beadwork patterns.

Overall, fetil is a stunning and versatile traditional Ethiopian dress that represents the rich cultural heritage of the Gondar region.
