A lovely wrap or pareo (pagne) from the Baulé of Ivory Coast. This is a 100% handmade garment woven by the Baulé using traditional hanging looms and techniques dating back to the Xth century. The final cloth is made by sewing together about 9 to 11 indigo dyed thin cotton bands. Then embroided zoomorphic and antropomorphic motivs sewn with vivid colors which will provide protection and good will to the wearer. Truly beautiful.

 

This one is a vintage example that has been chosen due to its authenticity and beauty. It is in a reasonable good state even though it may show some slight spots or minor unstitches that only add to its captivating and undeniable charm.
