Description

Beautiful African vintage stripe indigo cloth has been upcycled into cushion covers for your home.

The cloth was made in Mali by weaving Indigo cotton into strips then sewn together to form a large cloth and used as a ‘cloth wrapper’. This cloth is a genuine vintage piece which means that it shows signs of age and wear. We refer to these signs as ‘imperfect perfections’. These signs may include – fading, pulls, patches and separations. Indigo cloth can be made with thick or thin cotton weave. Both types are very textural and soft to touch, rustic in aesthetic value and are all handmade.

If you have any questions about the condition of the vintage cloth, please contact us before purchasing.

Vintage African Indigo cloth signified wealth, abundance & fertility. The indigo colour is derived from crushed leaves from the idigofera plant, ash and dried residue from indigo vats, rolled into balls and dried out. These balls are used as the primary ingredient in producing fermented dye vats in which handwoven cotton cloth is dipped several times to achieve the desired shade of indigo. This skill has been passed on from generation to generation in West Africa, mainly Mali & Burkino Faso.
