These beautiful textiles look fantastic hung on a wall, over a chair, or on the back of a couch. They can also be used to make pillows, as a beach blanket or even as a shawl.
The nature of vintage African Baule cloth is that each piece is unique in shade, size, and wear and will have imperfections. These warp ikat pieces are created by dying thread using indigo and other colors before the weaving process. Tie dyed threads are used to create the feathered patterns. The cotton threads are tightly woven into long strips that are then sewn together to create a large piece of cloth. Embroidered areas were sometimes added for embellishment. These textiles would have traditionally been worn as a wrapper and would have been repaired over and over again.
We strive to find textiles with the best color, patterns, weight, and hand feel. Each textile will likely have holes or tears, some repaired, some not. Sometimes there may be small stains. But these things do not take away from the history and beauty of each unique textile. less
