This fabric is quite possibly my favorite fabric. Ever. It seems to dance with happiness and color.

Ewe cloth comes from the Ewe ("e-vay") people who live in southeastern Ghana and Togo. Ewe cloth is woven on a loom similar to that of the Asante Kente cloth, though Ewe cloth is more elaborate and expressive than the Asante Kente cloth. This is because the Ewe weavers are not confined by the court-regulated designs that the Kente cloth weavers are restricted by. Ewe weavers do their weavings for sale and to take to market and therefore can express themselves freely. These rich cloths are highly collectible due to the intricate patterns and quality of workmanship.

This particular fabric was made in the 1970's. It is in beautiful condition. 9 Strips of woven cloth that are 4 3/4" wide are stitched together to make a beautifully rich and intricate geometric pattern. Orange is the predominant color, but there is lots of golden yellow, royal blue, turquoise, peach, white, black, red, and green.

Ewe weavers still weave today, which is how these vintage cloths are still made available.

Cotton and nylon, the entire cloth measures 44 1/2" x 68". This is a woman's cloth, which would be worn wrapped around the body sarong-style.
Finished edges all the way around.
