    Just FYI, Falasha is the Ge’ez word for stranger, migrant, or exile and a lot of people in the community see it as a derogatory term given the way it has been used over the years. The contemporary Beta Israel never describe themselves as Falasha. Also, traditionally women don’t wear a tallit, (which is a religious garment having precise designs with religious significance). The only women that really wear tallit are modern Reform and some Masorti Jews mostly from the US. I have never heard of a Beta woman wearing one. Beta women traditionally wear the Netela or Gabi shawls common among all Ethiopian women, which actually looks more like what you have drawn here then a tallit.
