Gray & White Striped Burkina Lumbar
For several centuries, stripwoven cloth just like this was the prized material for clothing throughout western Africa. These particular cloths are traditional wrappers worn by women of the Mossi peoples of Burkina Faso.
Narrow strips of handwoven cotton - 10 cm / 4 in wide - are stitched together into a whole cloth. However, unlike the indigo textiles that are dyed after the strips are sewn, these textiles are woven using two colored threads prior to being made into a larger textile.
