A brocade fabric, most likely printed in England for the Nigerian market, has been reworked to produce this unusual adire cloth. The ground material has a repeated motif of a baby and the text “Omo lere” which means “child is wealth,” a very popular local sentiment. This fabric has been cut into strips to facilitate the fold and stitch indigo resist patterning, then later resewn together to produce the finished fabric. Dates from around the 1950s or 60s and is in excellent condition. REF: AD313

Measurement: 74 inches x 53 ins, 189cm x 136cm.
