Hausa traders are to be seen in every part of Nigeria and even other parts of West Africa.In their long white gowns or robes they are easily recognizable figures amongst the more elaborately dressed and colourful costumes of the other tribes.Part of the charm of the Hausa dress is its dignified simplicity, straight line and cut little white hand-woven caps and hats are worn with this type of dress:there is usually little or no embroidery.One of the traders carries the muslim beads as most of the Hausa peoples share a common religion and way of life in following the teachings of Mohammed.
