This gorgeous piece of indigo was made near Conakry, Guinea, West Africa. Beginning with a base fabric of machine made cotton jacquard "bazin", the intricate patterns are stitched and tied by hand on the undyed cloth. Many times into the indigo dye bath creates an amazingly dark cloth. Many piece of this cloth still have the remnants of the original tying materials, left in to show the authenticity of the handwork done in preparation for dyeing. This fabric is traditionally used for garments and has a lovely soft feel. Please note that it will need to be washed several times to rinse the excess dye out. Once this has been done the fabric will remain vibrant and colorfast and can be machine washed and dried.
