Nigeria has produced some of the most outstanding handwoven textiles in Africa. High quality examples from the first half of the 20th Century are increasingly hard to find. This vintage Aso-oke textile is in the Sanyan style. Sanyan is known locally among the Yoruba ethnic group as the most prized textiles. It is handwoven with hand-spun natural brown cotton. This exceptional textile features natural organic earth colors.
