Rare dark indigo vintage Mossi stitch dyed cloth from Burkina Faso, West Africa P122
Rare vintage hand woven and hand stitch dyed indigo cloth from Burkina Faso, West Africa. The cloth would make an excellent scarf, shawl or throw.
The cloth has been handwoven in 5" wide strips which are hand-sewn together to form one large cloth. Traditionally worn as a wrapper, these cloths all unique in shade, size and wear.
The textile is 46" wide x 62 1/2" long with raw edge. It is in a very usual colorway of two shades of dark indigo which is extremely elegant. The textile has one 1" hole, a few small 1/2" ladders, and no stains that I can see. One of the strips has a seam [third photo]. One long seam has been repaired by the original owner. The cotton is medium thickness, nicely woven and has a soft feel. The piece is in good vintage condition given its age and origin.
I recommend hand washing separately with cold water and mild soap. This piece has already been washed and ironed and can be used immediately. I have more vintage African indigo scarves so please see my store for other colors.

All vintage items are 100% authentic and have been previously worn, often in a traditional environment. Every effort has been made to describe any flaws in both words and pictures in the listings however a certain amount of wear should always be expected. Handmade items should also be expected to contain irregularities which I believe adds to their character and does not detract in any way from their quality.
