Bundle - Purple Pleasures
One 20" x 20" Royal Aso Oke pillow & two 20" x 20" Meander Adire pillows make up this Bundle.
“Tied and dyed” Adire Eleko cloth marries the art of adding and subtracting to create detailed designs. A starchy cassava paste or wax is used to hand draw on the surface of cotton cloth. The rich dyes “resists” the wax, creating the desired pattern—and a lively touch to your home.
If you’ve seen a Nigerian wedding party outfitted in the most wonderful play of grids and colors, you’ve experienced the joy of Aso Oke fabrics. This “cloth of the countryside” is made up of dyed strands of fabric woven into strips of cloth on horizontal looms. Our collection offers striking embroidery as well as more subtle expressions of the Aso Oke craft.
