Habesha kemis
The habesha kemis (ሐበሻ habesha, "Ethiopian" ቀሚሽ kemis, "tunic, dress" [IPA: /k'emiʃɨ/]) is the traditional attire of Ethiopian women. Some Rastafarian women in the African diaspora also wear these dresses.
The ankle length dress, usually worn by Ethiopian women at formal events, is made of white chiffon. Many women wrap a shawl called a netela around the formal dress.
In America and Europe this dress has been retailed as "Ethiopian coffee dress." The provenance of this name is unknown.
