Ewe805 - Superb example of classic style Ewe chief’s cloth in which coloured weft faced blocks alternate along each strip with equal sized warp faced sections containing supplementary weft float motifs. On a few strips here he has repeated the same motif with variations along the length of the strip, such as the row of hands eight strips down.

Love it!

Detail: FR548 - This is the finest example among the small number of these rare cloths we have been able to find over the years, with two soft and subtle shades of indigo dyed hand spun local cotton used, neatly woven and well placed white weft float motifs, and most unusually, a subtle white stripe just visible in the weft. The irregular alignment of these faint stripes across the strips adds a layer of visual dynamism to the more static main design.

Detail: fr480 - This unique man's wrapper cloth is woven from hand spun indigo dyed cotton with imported knitting wool used for the weft float motifs. It is the only cloth I know in this style, differing in two ways from those collected in the Bondoukou region - instead of having a narrow white warp stripe at the selvedges of each strip this piece has white then pale blue.
