"The locals called the fabric 'African fabric' and will often times wear the material for nicer gatherings, such as weddings, funerals, or travels. If you are a business person, then you would wear African Dress most days. The fabric was sold usually to be bought and turned into clothing. Many women carry their children in 1-2 yards of the fabric and use that same fabric as a head wrap or as a skirt. It’s awesome to see what 3 yards of fabric can be used for (if wrapped correctly) :)." — Danielle Chambers
