Beauty in Colour
My greatest passion when I first moved to Ghana has to be the African cloth. Although from my understanding Ghana doesn’t manufacture any cloth itself (which is a real shame). I just could not get enough. I was buying 1 yard here, 2 yards there, 4 yards, just so I could make an outfit with it. In all honesty though I couldn’t wait very long and most of my cloth turned into head wraps.
What do I love most about cloth?
I love the texture and that it can be turned into whatever your imagination can handle. To me cloth represents freedom. There are so many colours, shades and patterns available (maybe even too much). I’ve found myself in a shop a few times completely bewildered by which cloth to actually buy. I have now come up with a system that helps me choose.
I stick to those colours when I head to the shops and that cuts my shopping time down by about 50% (much to my husbands pleasure)

How do you feel about cloth? I would love to know.
