This vintage Baule cloth from Côte d’Ivoire was traditionally worn as a wrap by women of the Baoulé tribe. Crafted from 100% cotton yarn dyed in indigo, the fabric is handwoven into narrow strips and features embroidered stylized turtle/crocodile decor, then stitched together into one piece. Suitable for use as a blanket or throw, and an excellent wallhanging, the piece is estimated to be around 25 years old, yet still in excellent condition. Not only has the indigo hue aged gracefully, the cloth boasts a soft feel for an inviting touch. Measures approx. 58" x 43".
