vintage indigo shawl

vintage indigo shawl


Every explorer needs a good shawl. It's the perfect accessory for travel, half scarf, half blanket and in any case a comforter when you feel homesick. I am very attached to mine for all of those reasons.

This beautiful vintage piece is an indigo shawl from Mali. I found it in Accra and its stripes are of a very special nature. The pieces of this shawl are strips of handwoven West African cotton, that have been dyed with natural indigo and stitched together. I understand that these fine shawls are mostly created for young men as part of their wedding gifts.
