A kaba and slit is a two or three piece outfit worn by Ghanaian women, consisting of a fitted blouse with wide sleeves, a wrapper skirt, and sometimes a matching headwrap. This kaba and slit is made from GTP (Ghana Textiles Printing Company) brand fabric, featuring a brown, purple, and blue wax print design. The fabric was chosen and paid for by the owner, Xorla Adabla, who works selling scarves and clothes at Ho market in Ghana. Xorla then commissioned her tailor, Confidence, to make the outfit. She last wore the outfit on Mother’s Day, 2015. Collected as part of the Fashioning Africa project.
