Nsaasawa in Twi often pieces of clothes pieced together more like a guilt or like Dolly Parton puts it, cloth of many colors. In the olden days, pieces were sown together to keep kids warm, when going for child birth and often worn by the poor who couldn’t afford full piece of cloth. As our African culture and generations revolutionized so has our way of living and thinking, the African textile industry have adopted printing different designs on the same fabric to serve as a style and as a reminder of how all our differences pieced together make us uniquely beautiful. Be ready to embrace your curves! This vibrant aqua blue mermaid dress features a sweet heart neckline, zipped back, sown in allowance. The best way to care for this or any other African clothing is to dry clean or hand wash in lukewarm water.
