My object is called an African dress. The African dress is made from cottons. The fabric comes in plane white, you have to put some color to it (any color of your choice). The cloth could be taken to a tailor at anyone that makes cloths to be sewn and put some designs on it which is up to you. The African dress was a thing for so many years ago. It started to become a popular thing all around the world for not too long ago. It started from Mali then suddenly everyone in Africa started purchasing it. I always wore African dresses since I was young but this specific type dress I only wear to occasions or Muslim holidays. It costs a lot of money to buy because it takes a lot of processes to get it done. This Attire is important to me because I use it to show my identity and Who I am and what part of the world am from. I like it even more because the fact that it is different on everyone but still made from the same fabric. Everyone looks unique and beautiful in African Attire's.
