Mossi Cloth - Animal Motif


This cloth is made by the Mossi people from central Burkina Faso, West Africa. The Mossi people, who constitute up to 40% of Burkina Faso's population, have been cultivating cotton for more than 1000 years. In rural villages elderly women spin the cotton, after which the men, using a narrow loom, weave thin long strips which are sewn selvedge to selvedge. Each strip is threaded with a woven motif, detailed with unique pattern or animal design. Perfect at the end of a bed or over a couch.

Please note each pattern is unique in animal motif, but all hold the same beautiful qualities as each are similar.
