Shopping for African fabric

One of the most enjoyable parts about walking about in Kigali is seeing the wonderful fabrics that the women wear. Our plan is to take fabric back to Canada to make OR hats, and sell them as a fundraiser for CASIEF, the Canadian Anesthesia Society International Education Foundation, who sponsors the residency program in Rwanda. Also, to have skirts made.
The colours are incredible, and of course Rwandan women are tall and willowy, which makes pretty
much anything you put on them look stunning.
Not overly applicable to the rest of us, though: Emmy and I tried on the fabrics... well, I suppose you can judge for yourselves...
