Last week, I took Karin on an fabric hunting excursion at the Zinder market.

Although the market is open every day, starting from around 9-10 am, there’s always something extra about going there on “market day” when new goods have (or are meant to!) arrived.

We started at the beginning of the Fabric Lane,

Finding tissue/cloth/fabrics in a sea of colour is a tricky thing,

because there are so many patterns and combination of colours that one has to sort apart in one’s mind.

Visiting nearly every boutique on the street, we ended up with a big catch.

Karin was delighted and found four different fabrics which she loved. The bottom right was my favourite. Which one is yours?
