Handmade Vintage Embroidered Indigo Cloth - Large Flowers
This beautiful cloth is completely one-of-a-kind hailing from Mali. Soft natural fiber has been traditionally woven on an old hand loom and stitched together in thin panels, and then dyed as a whole piece with the indigo plant which turned the cloth green and oxidizes it to blue. Indigo is a favorite color especially to be worn by women. It is embroidered with a beautiful larger "flowers" or what looks a little bit like a plus sign and triangle pattern featuring brightly colored yarns. Can be worn as a scarf, shawl, or used as a small table cloth or wall hanging.
In good vintage condition but with natural signs of wear and tear on the cloth and embroidery due to the antique nature.
