In West Africa in particular, small scale artisan weavers have been weaving cotton cloth for centuries.
Where ever we travel in West Africa, we're on the lookout for just these cloths: ranging from large blankets to scarf lengths to narrow strip cloth woven in 40-60 metre lengths.
All are handwoven from 100% undyed cotton. For some cloths the yarn is handspun as well. Our main source countries are Mali, Burkina Faso and The Gambia.
These cloths are all excellent for dyeing yourself.
