Product Description

" Handwoven cloth is sometimes regarded as having a spiritual potential not found in manufactured fabric."

The handmaking skills required to create such high quality fabric has been passed down from one generation to the next for at least 700 years.  Indigo production being one of the oldest industries in existence is found all across Africa with each people developing their own distinctive process and design. The traditional practice of gathering leaves, flowers and stems from the indigofera or lonchocarpus cyanescens plants are still used and ground together to make a pulp. The pulp is left in the sun for 2-3 days to dry. This serves as the base.

The Baule use a technique called "Ikat." It is a deeply complex process in which the threads are lined up on a loom by a weaver to form a pattern before being woven. 

The selection offered here is genuine gorgeous Baule hand woven cloth! The predominate colors are dark blue and white with yellow piping and raised embroidery in red, yellow and blue. This selection is in very good condition!
