Why We Love This

A beaded apron comprised of cotton thread and glass trade beads. Beaded aprons have replaced those made of iron and are worn by Cameroonian women on special occasions, such as weddings and during the presentation of newborn children. Geometric patterns found on the brightly colored beaded aprons reflect designs shared by a number of neighboring peoples. String, 65"L.

About Africa Direct

Africa Direct, Inc. is owned by Elizabeth Bennett and Sara Luther. African art, trade beads and ethnic jewelry are both business and passion for Sara and me. We started buying African art twenty years ago as gifts for our children, four of whom are adopted and are African-American. We had been active in anti-apartheid politics for some time.
