Why We Love This

A rare African textile strip-woven out of cotton. Some strips have cotton threads on them, others have geometric motifs. Strips are sewn together so that the motifs joint up to form lateral bands of pattern alternating the embroidered geometric motifs and the cotton thread designs. The cotton thread used for this cloth is dyed in various colors.
