By Ashley Chambers Berekte Yemane models her original handmade Ethiopian and Eritrean cultural garments with decorative patterns and embroidery that represent Ethiopian and Eritrean identity and national pride. These cultural fashions are worn for all celebratory occasions, including religious services, weddings, baptisms, holidays and birthdays. When attending church and during celebrations, women cover their hair with shawls in a style that shows the shiny threads along the bottom. Traditional embroidery can also be seen in today’s modern cultural fashions. Photos and collage by Adam Turner.
