Beautiful vintage handwoven cotton and dyed African indigo fabric, made by the Dogon in Mali. Textiles are dyed with the resist, stitch, tie dying technique and each piece is unique.
All the ones I will be listing are. Hard to find, older indigo pieces in very good conditon, with the old dyed patterns, and all were used, soft and color fast from wear and washing.
This piece has 6 hand woven heavier weight cotton strips hand-stitched together and stitch dyed with a circle pattern that has a blue spot in the center on one side, and a solid white dot on the other. There are also a few scattered oval stitch dyed elements which I was told represent cowie shells. Condition: ends are not hemmed; 59 x 38; there is one repaired hole in the center (see picture), but rest in great, excellent condition, and showing a very popular blue indigo color with white, lighter blue threads showing through. I picked ones that were in the best condition, and/or the most unique, but there are almost always a few flaws, which I will note in my listings and photographs.
