Hi,

These photographs are so beautiful. I always admire the well tied gele with multiple pleats in front.

The last time I wore a gele, a lady at the salon tied it for me. I'd love to learn how to do it myself. :-)
Thanks Nedoux. You can get to learn to tie gele either through watching online videos or getting trained by a professional.
