Traditional fabric from Cape Town, South Africa brought to you by traveler Sydney Buck.
"Eccentric patterned fabrics can be seen everywhere in South Africa. People wear these kinds of fabric everyday from their dresses to shirts and to headdresses as well. It was so amazing to see so many colorful patterns in the streets. In the traditional villages in South Africa, each village has their own pattern the whole family wear and men and women wear different colors. Married women wear a different color than single women as a sign to visitors. The married women are in the maroon dresses, the single in the red dresses, the married men wear shirts and the single men do not. You can see the love for color in South Africa not only in fabric but in the architecture as neighborhoods are painted very vibrantly." —Sydney Buck
