Head gear has become a new movement, I heard a friend’s friend complaining about the way her gele was. She insisted that she would have used a bigger sized gele instead of the on that she used, she was so particular about the way her gele looked that I began to wonder. This reaction made me realise how important the gele has become.
The gele fashion is a trend all on its own and rightly so if I should add, it is not easy to achieve the tying and so you can’t blame people for turning their head side to side so you can see how beautifully tied their gele look. The gele culture is one that came about centuries ago even before my grandmother was born and so this should tell you that it is an embedded culture.
The tying of the popular head gear has always deferred from generation to generation, this generation however seem to have so much more styles than the previous and this is because the world is now run by fashion.
The head gear also comes in different shapes, size, fabrics etc but the most popular right now is the embellished aso oke. Aso Oke was and is the choice fabric for a gele any day any time because that’s what our ancestors used to use and the fact that it comes in all forms of designs makes it interesting.
