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. Most Aso Oke is strip-cloth, meaning it is made of multiple strips sewn together. This piece is made of 8 strips.

The delicate pastels in this cloth are so beautiful. There are shimmering metallic threads running through almost all of the strips of this cloth, as well as some open-weave strips.

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

Fabric measures 25" wide x 72" long (the medium piece in the set). Together with the large and small piece, it would make a complete Aso Oke outfit.

I have other color combinations of these incredible textiles as well; please see my other listings: http://www.etsy.com/shop/WomanShopsWorld?section_id=7894747
