A varied as the jewelry of the continent are the textiles of Africa. From the brightly coloured Ewe- and Ashanti Kente-cloth and the Asafo-flags of Ghana to the blankets of the Fulani or Dogon of Mali. Toguna also presents a large collection of traditional dresses and embroided headpieces from the Yemen. The Wodaabe of Niger also present beautiful embroideries. Large caftans from Western-Nigeria and hunter-jackets from Mali are also available. The tribes of Southern-Ethiopia still wear their traditional goat-skin loincloths; a few examples are to be found with us.
