These three women epitomize the women of Rwanda, past and present, who stylishly wrap themselves in kitenge sarongs with elaborate head scarves, and often swaddle their infants in them as well.  Kitenge fabric is made by drawing a succession of patterns in hot wax and dying them different colors at each stage, a technique commonly known as batik.  In Rwanda, the most prized kitenge bears the label “Super Wax.”  Look for this detail in the hem.
