"This kind of fabric was seen everywhere, from women's dresses, including matching head-wear, men's attire where the shirt and pants would be of the same fabric, to small children's dress and clothes. I never saw a similar pattern when I was moving about the city. Some residents would wear suites and dresses like we see here in the US, but many wore these special fabric pieces. With work, on the last day we had a formal closing, and many of the men were wearing traditional West African attire." —Katie McCarthy
