This apron was made by the Kirdi people of Northern Cameroon. Often times the only garment worn, these aprons were a symbol of womanhood and were meant to protect a woman's sex organs, which, it is believed, are particularly vulnerable to the intrusion of evil spirits. The cowry shell was once used as currency and connotes ideas of wealth and fertility.
