The typical traditional functions that call for the elaborate Kaba and Slit arrangement include weddings, engagements, outdoorings, baby dedications and funerals. The predominantly red and black prints are often worn at funerals while white prints are worn at engagements and outdoorings.
Now if I remember correctly, about 6 yards of fabric will get you the complete Kaba and Slit. The Kaba is the top which uses up 2 yards, the bottom is the Slit which uses another 2 yards. The remaining 2 yards can be used for a head wrap or a shawl. This 2 piece is really versatile as mothers will also carry their new borns on their back in a tight wrap with them.
