     Brocade is a type of fabric that is made from silk. I'm from a country in west Africa called Guinea. Guinea has different types of styles of clothing, but brocade is one of the most popular and well known clothing in the country. Brocade is really expensive in my country, most of the time only the wealthiest wear this clothing. Most people only wear this clothing during special occasions, like marriages, festivals and holidays. This brocade was a gift from my mother who lives in Guinea. I got it in 2016, which was the last time I visited my home country. I wore the brocade on all of my cultural holidays, and religious holidays until it stop fitting me. Looking at this brocade reminds me of my family back in my home country.
