Baule Strip Woven Textile Côte d'Ivoire
An exceptional old Baule textile produced using the so-called Ikat technique. In this technique, threads are tied-dyed before the weaving is processed.
We do not recommend laundering textiles and do not accept returns of textiles that have been laundered in any manner. Even dry cleaning is too much for some of these antique textiles. For some of them, a very gentle HAND washing (NEVER MACHINE, on any setting) in cool water with a very gentle detergent works, but even then, dyes may not be colorfast, and fabric may be less strong than it appears.
