The clothing in Jamaica is vibrant but it is comfortable. The clothing is usually made from lightweight cotton and linens. They would usually wear light woollens in the evenings and avoid synthetics. Some people wear global fashions but the traditional clothing is still common. Traditional clothing was made from calico cloth and was colourful. They wear tiered dresses and head scarves. The scarves are specifically wrapped and placed by folded and piece of material in half, tying it around the crown of the head and then tucking it in a particular way to keep it from slipping off. Men’s clothing was usually loose fitting pants and shirts made out of natural, organic fabrics. They didn’t dress as colourful as women and bold designs and clashing colours were rarely seen. They were also very comfortable. In more modern times, the clothing has become apart of culture. These items are coloured to represent the Ethiopian flag in red, green and gold.
