    This is called the Hekutha-phi and it is worn by both the Sumi men and women. I appreciate the showcase however You could have done a better job by taking a picture of a real Sumi wearing it in all its glory, knowing full the garments history and full worth. Comparing with the other tribe’s pictures, the warrior tribe seems to be shown in poor light and is bound to hurt the sentiments of those who know the rich cultural and historical significance of this shawl.
