Every year we spend part of each trip trawling through piles of old bits of costume. It's amazing how many mosquitoes can hide in those piles. However its all worth it for the gems that we occasionally unearth. We also buy costume from individual women in villages. Here is a selection of some of the amazing pieces of traditional costumes we have collected.
