The Role of Gele Fabric in Styling the Finished Look
A gorgeous Gele style will get you noticed in a crowd, whether in a wedding or any other occasion in Nigeria. And since a bride needs to be the center of attention and look stunning.
When shopping for your traditional wedding outfit, ensure texture of the Gele fabric you choose is one that you are skilled enough to manipulate – not too hard and not too stiff, if you’re not expert enough at tying a perfect Gele head-scarf.

When you wrap a Gele with a soft head-tie fabric, the finished head-gear will not stand firm. And if the Gele material is too hard, it may be challenging to flex and twist the scarf in any style you desire.
