Scope and content

Photograph of Mrs. Lyle Ran, manager of the Abreha Castle Hotel in Mekele, Ethiopia. Mrs. Ran is wearing a shemma cloth in the style of a sari. Shemma cloth is a hand woven material ubiquitous in Ethiopia, but particularly in northern Ethiopia. Lorna R. Marsden purchased an example of a shemma cloth designed for special occasions during her travels which she later donated to the Museum of Anthropology in 2016, but this image shows its typical and everyday use by women in the late 1960s and early 1970s as a wrap for head and bodies.
