Traditionally, the double gele design usually called Warri gele has its history in the South-South region of Nigeria and its a popular choice among brides from that region (Delta, Bayelsa, Rivers and Edo). In recent times,the style has been embraced by ladies of other tribes too and its fast becoming a popular culture among brides who desire a different look at their traditional marriage or engagement even some don't mind tying three geles. The beauty of the design is that it can be tied using Damask, aso oke, Seego but its best if the gele is new for the folds to come out properly. Bows, roses,stars, fans are some of the shapes used to accessorize the double gele style.
