Cotton Warp-Ikat Cloth
Baule Tribe, Ivory Coast

96” x 53”
Inventory # 10405

Ikat is the process whereby threads are tie-dyed before weaving takes place. When the cloth is woven, any section of the cloth where the threads have been previously ikat-dyed will have a rather frayed pattern between the dyed and undyed colors. The warp-ikat process is used sparingly in West Africa.
