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 15 strips.

This is one of my favorite pieces out of my current selection. So many colors abound in this beautiful cloth! There is rich salmony-red, shimmering aqua/periwinkle, shimmering dark green and purple, all alternating with strips of khaki and green. The colors in this one really POP!

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 52" wide x 75" long.

This fabric is over 30 years old. It shows some wear and tear, and that is part of its beauty. It no doubt has countless of years of use left still. It is ver strong and durable, while being vibrantly beautiful at the same time.

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