Textile Tourism – Accra, Ghana

I prepare to travel through out Ghana, learning about textile and sewing production.  To begin my travels I had a uniform made, so I can assimilate to local dress.  The fabric was purchased on a Sunday morning in Makoha Market, from Alime.  I purchased 6 yards for 80 CD.  28.18 Dollars, which is about 4.69 per yard.
