Chetenge for sale!  This is the fabric used to make women’s dresses.  All females in Western Africa wear chetenge.  In villages it’s usually a piece of cloth wrapped around as a simple skirt with a blouse, but in cities, entire outfits are worn for business meetings or when dressing up for church.  The colors are always bold and the designs always graphic.
