Varieties of colour and pattern

Each of these gomezis show that there are unlimited varieties of coloured and patterned materials. The women have choosen very plain sashes (kitambala)for tying their gomezi. Women only carry small purse bags while wearing a gomezi like the lady on the left. Older women, usually those with grandchildren will wear muted colours like the beige gomezi on the far right.
