PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

We do not recommend laundering textiles, and do not accept returns of textiles which have been laundered in any manner. Even dry cleaning is too much for some of these antique textiles. For some of them, a very gentle HAND washing (NEVER MACHINE, on any setting) in cool water with a very gentle detergent works, but even then, dyes may not be colorfast, and fabric may be less strong than it appears. Additional Information: : This fine warrior or hunter's tunic decorated with amulets of all kind comes from the Bamana people of Mali. Such ritual tunics were also found among other Mande groups in Mali and among the Akan/Asante peoples of Ghana.

Bamana hunting-related items are well-known and quite sought-after, and collectors love these pieces since they almost always have a fascinating array of protective and "good-luck" amulets attached to their surface. Our tunic is a superb example of Bamana hunter costumes on which multiple small horns and leather fetish packets filled with unknown materials or verse from the Koran, to ensure a successful hunt and protection during battles. The wilderness is regarded as both dangerous and valuable, both as a source of food and as a source of spiritual gifts. The amulets provide safety, and its contents were known only by the owner.
