The first project as action for my Textile Cultures elective was to present the textile that is most important to me in a way that explained both what it means to me and how it was produced. I never really considered where the clothes, blankets, and other textiles in my house came from, so I was very interested in learning about the production of my favorite textile: my canga. To find out what a canga is, how it is made, and what it means to me, click through the slideshow below.
