Fine Ewe kente woman’s strip weave cloth from Ghana with one of the less frequently seen designs. On a dark blue and white background the weaver has carefully positioned the paired pattern blocks so that they form diagonal lines down the cloth, imparting a dynamic, almost spiralling, effect to the complete textile. The diamond shaped weft inserts within the solid colour blocks are quite unusual. Simple geometric shapes in the pattern blocks reinforce the effect. In excellent complete condition. Dates from circa 1930-1950.
Measures 76 inches x 46, 194 cm x 118.
