Textile, Accra, Ghana, Africa

This piece of printed cotton is from the ‘Woodin’ range, produced at the Ghana Textiles Printing (GTP) factory in Accra, Ghana. Woodin is an African fashion brand, inspired by African culture and art. It is only printed on one-side which makes it a cheaper fabric to produce and purchase. Woodin is a popular fabric range that is purchased in lengths from a shop and taken to a tailor to be made into garments, typically for work and everyday wear. This piece was bought by the World Art Curator from the Woodin shop in Accra Mall after a factory visit to see the cloth being made. Collected as part of the Fashioning Africa project.
