I said, “The only way I can play someone this hard is for something to be peeled away each week, and the first thing that needs to go is the wig.” I just wanted to deal with her hair. It’s a big thing with African-American women…You start when you’re just a young girl. Do you twist it? Do you leave it natural when it’s so hard to take care of? Then you start wearing wigs but every night before bed you’ve got to take the wig off and deal with your hair underneath. And it’s a part of Annalise that I needed the writers to deal with because I’ve never seen it, ever, on TV and I thought it would be very powerful. It’s part of her mask. - Viola Davis (x)

In Dhaka I met Bibi Russell, designer and vigorous defender of the handloom weavers, whose craft has made a unique contribution to Bengali art and tradition……..She wears a dramatic blue and green saree, hand- loom cloth, which cost 145 taka - itself the most eloquent tribute to the beauty of the work of people she wants to rescue from the demoralisation we saw in Shahjatpur. [X]
"The garments industry is here only for cheap labour. They say we cannot produce the fabric. It is a lie. I show nothing that I cannot produce here."  Bibi Russell quoted in [X]

Bibi Russell.
I quite like the gamcha as headgear. Especially when it is co-ordinated with the sari.
