CAMEROONS AFRICAN HANDWOVEN INDIGO MAN'S WRAP

Fascinating indigo handwoven textile from the Cameroons that is resist dyed in differing geometric patterns. Woven in narrow long strips that are sewn together to create a traditional yards-long wrap for men. A great example of indigo handweaving and specialty dying by indigenous peoples, this example is from Africa. Please have a look at our Japanese and Tibetan indigo wovens also, in addition to our American hand woven blankets and coverlets all of them natural dyed with that beloved indigo blue
