Description

E1017 – Unusual vintage Ewe kente woman’s cloth where the layout of stripes on the background is the same throughout but the weaver has alternated between a mid blue and a grey colour in the single broader stripe, quite a subtle effect. The subdued warp background is crossed by a regular grid of paired weft faced blocks in multiple colours, each pair framing small weft float motifs. In all a carefully thought out and attractive composition.  In excellent complete condition, dates from around 1930-1950.

Measurements 77 inches X 46, 197 cm X 116.
