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.

In Mali among the Dogon, men and women have clearly defined jobs when it comes to the production of cloth. The ladies purchase the cotton with money they earned from cultivating the fields. The cotton is then spun into thread exclusively by women. The thread is the given to the weavers who are always by tradition male. The women dictate the size of the cloth to be made and also decided if the fabric will be sewn, dyed or sold as is!

Offered here is a beautiful handmade vintage cloth featuring multi colored sections in black, green, red, white, yellow and blue against gray base stripping.


This selection may include tiny tiny separations in the seams and hand made repair work these are all normal characteristics of aged handmade textiles. As with vintage cloth of this nature, small rips, small stains, loose stitching might appear on the cloth. Our cloth is in good condition!

Dimensions: 52 inches long x 39 inches wide.
