Pagnes Haussa

 Djerma Cloth
Pagnes Hausa 
 Djerma Cloth and Hausa Cloth are made from four to eight inch wide strips. It is most commonly made with manufactured thread. They are similar to each other and which is which may be disputed.  In that they are strip-cloth they are similar to Kente, but woven on a wider loom and not done in silk or rayon.  In my experience Djema uses narrower strips and is the more colorful and intricate of the two.
