Dark and light indigo warp stripes on this unusual fringed men’s cloth from the area of the northern border between Ivory Coast and Ghana. Dates from circa 1950. This is a strong hand spun cotton fabric fabric with a soft handle and neat braided and tasselled fringes. There is a lot of mostly quite recent “indigo” fabric from Burkina Faso and Mali around at the moment but older and more beautiful pieces like these can still occasionally be found by patient searching in other West African countries. Signs of wear but overall in good neat condition.
Measures 115 ins X 80, 293 cm X 203.
