AGB133. Dramatic sleeveless Yoruba danshiki robe with flared skirt, along with matching trousers. Hand embroidered with the “endless knot” motif in green. The colour of this outfit echoes that of highly prestigious C19th silk chief’s robes, which sometimes had yellow highlights, but this early to mid C20th version is tailored from cotton asooke rather than silk. Dates from early to mid C20th. Condition is excellent.
Measurements: 43 inches across shoulders x 51, 110cm x 130. Trousers 33 inches, 84 cm length.
