In the middle part of the twentieth-century blue and white cotton strip weave cloths were popular women's ceremonial attire in Ghana. Nowadays it is difficult to find examples that have survived in good condition. Each strip is handwoven on a narrow loom and then hand-sewn together to make a larger cloth.

 

This cloth has two raw ends. It could be repurposed as an interior textile for example as a wall hanging. Indigo is a fugitive dye so please take care with placing it alongside lighter coloured fabrics and when washing.

 

This cloth is vintage which means that it may have a few small marks and minor repairs consistent with use.

 

Approximate dimensions: 70 inches x  50 inches
