Description

Unique golden brown, dark indigo blue and white strip weave Ewe men’s cloth from Ghana or Togo, with a broad white band of braiding and tassels at each end. Hand spun cotton.  Although superficially similar to the more familiar Indigo strip weave men’s cloths from Ivory  Coast, these much rarer Ewe men’s cloths have a finer thread and a tighter weave giving a much smoother crisper surface with fresher looking whites in particular. This piece is the only one I have seen with the brown stripe. In excellent condition, dates from around 1930-1950s.

Measures 112 ins X 75, 284 cm X 192
