Description

Numerous different adinkra stamped designs are framed with rectangles on a pale terracotta cotton background on this dramatic mid twentieth century Asante adinkra men’s cloth. Hand stitching in multicoloured silk joins the cloth panels.  Careful positioning of the stamped motifs make this a fine example.  As with many other African textile traditions vintage examples of adinkra are becoming increasingly hard to source and prices have risen accordingly. Dates from around the 1950 or 1960s. Condition: excellent, some loose threads at joins.

Measurement: 136 inches x 88 ins, 345 cm x 225 cm
