Out of stock


AS600 – Interesting Yoruba aso oke woman’s wrapper cloth, iro, dating from around the 1930s.  Dark indigo hand spun cotton strips in a large plaid pattern known as petuje alternate with strips in a lighter and smaller blue and white handspun cotton check that is almost completely concealed by eggshell blue silk extra weft float patterns in rectangular blocks across and down the strips. I can’t recall seeing another version of this particular weft float pattern.  Dates from circa 1930, retains it’s original hand sewn seems throughout, and is in excellent condition.

Measurement: 80 ins x 53, 203 cm x 134.
