Burkina Faso Tote (by Victor Martinez-Cassmeyer)

Fabric from Léo, Burkina Faso brought to you by traveler Victor Martinez-Cassmeyer.

"The local fabric is used in so many ways in Burkina Faso. This is an example of traditional fabric that is handmade and dyed in a village. Traditional fabric is used to make dresses, wrap dresses, head scarves for women and shirts, pants, and boubous for men. As a Peace Corps volunteer, this particular design was used by one of my host moms as a wrap dress and head scarf." —Victor Martinez-Cassmeyer
