Description

Fine early Ewe weft faced strip weave men’s cloth from Ghana/Togo, circa 1900 with a unique palette that alternates dark indigo blue with vibrant bright yellow. Narrow white lines separate each block of colour, carefully aligned to alternate with it’s neighbours. A single red strip marks the lower edge of the cloth. The general Ewe name for this type of weft faced textile is “titriku” which just means “thick cloth.”  Typically they were woven in red and white blocks, or blue and white. This is the only one I have seen in blue and yellow. Condition is excellent.

Measures 107 inches x 65, 271 cm x 166.
