Handwoven Strip Cloth

Handwoven and dyed in West Africa

Weaving cotton into long, narrow strips up to 60 metres long is an important textile tradition found throughout West Africa. These strips are thicker than machine woven craft cotton. 

Undyed cotton strip cloth

100% cotton, usually from Burkina Faso, occasionally from Guinea or Côte d'Ivoire. Also - from The Gambia: ultrasoft tree cotton - sometimes called 'silk cotton', which feels similar to kapok.

Indigo and black cotton strip cloth

100% cotton, usually indigo and white, occasionally with an accent colour. Also black with various accent colours. From northern Ghana, primarily Daboya.

Per metre: from £3.00
