No, it's not a spelling mistake!
Don't ask me to pronounce it,
although I've been told a number of times!
But I do know that it means material or cloth!I bought some igitenge and then asked a shop down the street from here to sew it up. And specifically asked her to save me all the scraps. She was very generous and even gave me scraps of other material that she had laying around.
|1st material - was a smaller piece, 4 yds. I think.|
|Made a 2 piece outfit with pockets, and scraps for quilts.|
|2nd material, 6 yds I believe.|
|Made this outfit, with pockets, the head piece is big enough to wear as a wrap skirt!|
|The extra material she gave me.|
