Description

It was probably nostalgia that prompted me to buy this jazzy woman’s wrapper cloth from the Dioula people of Burkina Faso. Back in the day I used to collect cloth like this wandering around the mud walled compounds of the old quarters of Bobo Dioulasso and Burkina was one of the most enjoyable West African countries to visit. A cloth like this would be worn new for a festival such as Eid. The appearance of an alternation between two patterns is actually single wide strips.
Dates from late C20th. Condition is good.

Measurement: 71 inches x 46 ins, 180 cm x 117 cm.
