This baoule (pronounced ba-oo-lay) is a beautiful light blue textile with colorful stripes. Textiles from the Côte d'Ivoire in Western Africa are handmade from colorful cotton threads. Each strip is sewn together to create a larger piece of fabric that is often worn at community gatherings.
All of our goods are handmade by refugee women in Chicago working to gain meaningful employment.
Minor imperfections, or signs of age, are an inherent part of our handmade textiles and add to the originality of the piece.
