Description

Indigo strip weave ‘country cloth’ men’s wrapper from a weaver of the Mende people, Sierra Leone. Collected in the 1950s and probably new when bought, this hand spun cotton cloth and a distinctive slubby texture quite different from the Ivory Coast and Ghana indigos we usually find. It’s a strong cloth in excellent complete condition.

Measures 80 ins X 55, 204 cm X 140.
