Habesha kemis

The habesha kemis (ሐበሻ habesha, "Ethiopian" ቀሚስ kemis, "tunic, dress") is the traditional attire of Habesha women.

The ankle length dress is usually worn by Ethiopian women at formal events. It is made of chiffon, and typically comes in white, grey or beige shades. Many women also wrap a shawl called a netela around the formal dress.

In North America and Europe, this dress has been retailed as "Ethiopian coffee dress", an allusion to the traditional coffee ceremony.
