More about the Gele:
Headwraps hold significant meaning and symbolism to both Africans and African-Americans alike. In Africa, headwraps are often worn to convey modesty, and different colors of head wraps can symbolize anything from wealth to social status. They also serve a practical function in protecting the head from the rays of the sun. In African culture, head wraps are often folded in a rectangle and tied around the head in an ornamental fashion, bringing the attention upwards and towards the face. African headwraps are very striking and the bright colors can really animate and brighten the face of the wearer. In West Africa, head wraps are referred to as ‘gele’ in Yoruba or ‘ichafu’ in Igbo
