Bamako Women's Market


A young woman selling coconut-meat and coconut-water refreshments in the Womens’ Market of Bamako. The market women were surprised to learn I too had once earned my living hand-dyeing fabric – that earned me some bonya , respect. Anthropologist Maxine Downs and filmmaker Maureen Gosling made an excellent documentary, Bamako Chic , about the creativity and resourcefulness of Malian women dyers.
