Fulani Blanket - Plain
This Khasa style blanket is made by the Fulani weavers from the Niger Bend of Mali and Niger. Woven of white sheep’s wool on a horizontal strip loom, they are made up of narrow panels and sewn together. Each strip has supplementary weft detail, where motifs and patterns symbolise different influences of North Africa. Because of their weight and warmth they are only suitable for certain climates, worn in the cold season, only small numbers are exported to northern Nigeria, Burkina-Faso and Ghana. Each one is slightly unique.
100% Wool, measures approx 220cm long x 130cm wide.
