Item details

A modern design twist on traditional African tie-dye fabric. Great for clothing, accessories and any craft projects you have on the drawing board!

This fabric is hand-drawn and hand-dyed in Nigeria and consists of traditional Yoruba symbols each with a name and story. The stories are often words of advice from the elders, or a means of documenting social, economic and environmental conditions. The fabric is therefore like a piece of Yoruba art.

For an idea of the scale of the patterns in the fabric look at the last image above. Each rectangular 'box' in the fabric design measures approximately 12 x 17 inches.
