The simple graphic depictions of African imagery have a wonderful naif feel. They are all created by our friend Musa Jaiteh in his family compound in Sukuta. Musa uses stitching, tying and wax stamping to create a resist before hand-dyeing with kola nut and indigo. All fabrics are 100% cotton, either damask or a light plain weave, as indicated.
Note about colour: Because Musa's fabrics are all hand-dyed, there may be slight variations between batches and patterns. See also: Washing African Fabrics
Ordering lengths: Musa dyes in small batches, so his fabrics are normally 4.5 metres long. If you need a longer piece, please check with us for availability.
