Description

IND355- Beautiful 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, 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 mixes hand spun and industrially spun thread. In excellent condition, with three tiny patched repairs, dates from around 1930-1950s.¬† Would make a beautiful bed cover.

Measures 98 ins X 64, 250 cm X 162
