The fabric type and costume style, worn here by Ms Lou, is similar to Martinique, and some other Caribbean islands. We all share similar African roots, hence the similarities in our styles. The brightly colored plaid design evokes West African fabric design, I suspect that’s why we chose it.. Madras cotton cloth is used on many Caribbean islands in our traditional costumes. The term “madras” is Indian in origin, so that is in the mix too. That’s probably the name given to this type of fabric by the British, the fabric was likely produced in India, probably reminded them of Scottish plaids too.

No lies


My grandma use to sing this in the kitchen when she was cooking. Especially at Christmas 🎄…. I miss her all the time but especially today. I’m in the kitchen cooking her traditional Jamaican Christmas breakfast and the memories are equal to my tears… so many!
