Each design and colour can reflect local traditions and symbols such as the tribal, marriage and social status of the wearer.Textile around the world have always offered a means of communicating the most subtle and complex of messages through colour, patterning, materials, inscriptions and the ways in which they are worn or otherwise displayed.
