Item details

Very finely woven, mid-century, hand-loomed Baule strip cloth from Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast). I haven't seen a Baule cloth this old for quite some time. It would make an excellent shawl or throw.

The textile has been handwoven in 3 1/4" (8.25cm) wide strips which are hand-sewn together to form one large cloth. Traditionally worn as a wrapper, these textiles all unique in shade, size and wear.

The textile is 40" (102cm) wide x 64" (162cm) long with a raw edge. It is made form a wonderful assortment of multicolored strip woven cloth, the yellow strips also have fine decorative cotton embroidery [see photos]. There are no holes or repairs that I can see. There are many light stains and areas of color bleed [see photos]. The textile is in heavily worn condition and is a stunning one-of-a-kind antique textile. It is tightly woven and thinner the newer Baule textiles, it drapes beautifully.

I recommend had washing separately in cold water with mild soap. This piece has already been washed and ironed and can be used immediately. The last photo shows a styling idea, not the textile listed for sale.

I have more vintage African indigo textiles so please see my store for other colors. Combined shipping available on all textiles. Please ask any questions prior to purchase. Thank you!

All items are 100% authentic and vintage items will 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.
