If you explore the markets of Ghana, you will see the colorful fabrics everywhere. I love the mix of traditional patterns, and the 70´s inspired modern fabrics. They are quite affordable too, from 5 to 20 GHC per yard. If you´re in Accra, Makola market is a good place to go for fabric shopping, but also the markets of Kumasi and Tamale are known for their great selections.

I´m an Oslo based web publisher with passion for communication, travel and a green lifestyle. When I travel, I prefer to go slow, sustainable, and “live like a local”. Why slow? It is about challenging the cult of speed, and to enjoy the small things in life and to live in the present.
