This beautiful piece of Aso Oke (pronounced ah-SHOW-kay) fabric is from the Yoruba people from south west Nigeria, made 20-25 years ago. Intricately woven primarily by men, with beautiful patterns and incredible details, in a beautiful khaki, with the most beautiful sparkling pink. This cloth has such beautiful colors. Most Aso Oke is strip-cloth, meaning it is made of multiple strips sewn together. This piece is made of 14 strips.

Rich aqua, metallic purple and golds, bright greens, and even a bit of pink and brown. The purple embroidery on this one is different and unusual, too. This piece also has several strips with open-weave sections that give it great intricacy.

This fabric is the large section out of a set of traditional Yoruba clothing. It would be worn wrapped around the lower body. How about using it as a beautiful table runner, as is. Or how about sewing your own fabulous creation? Skirt, curtains, shirt, bag, the possibilities are endless.

Fabric measures 46" wide x 76.5-19" long. (This piece has a longer section and a shorter section; you can see in picture1).
As this fabric is at least 30 years old, it does show some wear and slight stains. I have not washed it; it is in original condition. I have photographed 3 of the spots that are the most obvious. I think they would come out, but I will leave that up to the new owner.

I have other color combinations as well-please see my other listings:
