Traditional fabric from Makeni, Sierra Leone brought to you by traveler Rebekah Olson.

"In Sierra Leone, you see these fabrics (lapas) in all sorts of patterns and colors worn as wraps around their waist, chest and head or made into dresses and shirts. They are also used as a pad on their heads while carrying large objects (to stabilize it), as well as used to hold babies on their backs." —Rebekah Olson
