VINTAGE ADIRE ELEKO

VINTAGE ADIRE ELEKO

Description

Adire Eleko is a style of Nigerian indigo textiles that is painstakingly hand painted with complex symbols. They are made with resistance-dye techniques using the finished hand-painted cotton cloth that is dipped in natural indigo dyes. The design detail and the rich indigo color found in this older textile is rarely replicated in modern designs. Clearly a wonderful piece
