Head wraps have been referred to as the Crowns of West Africa. They’re practically a staple in West African traditional attire, be it small ties with African print or the elaborate Gele used for special occasions. The head wraps always give your outfit a noticeable edge and make you stand out.

The art of tying them is truly that- an art. Some woman have made tying Geles in particular their creative business. What do you think? Do you like these as much as I do?
