Burkina Faso Tote (by Sheila Bitibale)

Traditional fabric from Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso brought to you by traveler Sheila Bitibale.

"They have a large market in Bobo-Dioulasso, this fabric was found there. Although they have fabric shops everywhere it was tough to find. So often they make knock offs where the red is not as vibrant. I was excited to find the true fabric. The Mossi tribe is the largest tribe in Burkina Faso. Any culture event that the Mossi tribe performs they will have a piece of the fabric on their clothing. They have also commercialized the print with a brand name Burkindi." —Sheila Bitibale

When visiting a new country with a new culture, she likes learning about a completely different kind of day. She enjoys exploring the rural areas because that’s where she finds herself in a state of complete Burkina Faso’nation as she soaks up the local music, food and arts.
