Beautiful Bazin worn by my grandmother!
Beautiful Bazin worn by my grandmother!

My object is a Bazin it is one of the most important things to me about my culture. It is a beautiful thing made with cotton, it has a nice color with several design.  It has several styles that people can choose from, the colors are vibrant and beautiful. In 2017 my grandma gave this wonderful Bazin to me when I was coming from Guinea to United States. This gift show the love between me and her and how important our relationship is. When I wear this cloth for the first time in Minnesota I remembered my grandma, I felt comfortable and emotional and I really miss her on that day, it was Eid.  It present in many different cultures in Guinea. Bazin is an essential piece of clothing that we wear on special days like a wedding or other important ceremonies.  It is important to me because it is part of my culture, also people will know that you're African.
