This beautiful piece of Aso Oke (pronounced ah-SHOW-kay) fabric is from the Yoruba people from south west Nigeria, and was made sometime around 20-25 years ago. Intricately woven primarily by men, with beautiful patterns and incredible details, in a shimmering royal blue, with lighter periwinkle blue, khaki, white, silver, and gold. This piece has beautiful loose stitches that are woven over the khaki stripes (see last picture), and beautiful shimmer.

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, as is. Or how about sewing your own fabulous creation? Skirt, curtains, shirt, bag, the possibilities are endless.

Fabric measures 26 1/4" wide x 64" long (the medium piece in the set). Together with the small and large piece, it would make a complete Aso Oke outfit.

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