Description

AS613 – This unusual 1960s Yoruba aso oke woman’s wrapper cloth has a zigzag pattern of floating threads on a wine red ground. This zigzag thread technique was very laborious to weave and we find only a few examples, more typically on beige cloth. It was called “Eko Bridge” after the zigzag iron struts that supported the colonial era bridge joining Lagos Ilsand to the mainland. This strong thick cloth would make a great furnishing fabric for pillows/cushions or upholstery. In excellent condition.

Measurement: 81 inches x 48 ins, 206 cm x 122 cm.
