Woman's Head Tie

Not on view

A factory-woven cloth with "damask" patterns, tie-dyed and sold by Dyula women in the capital of the Baule region, Bouaké, this woman's head tie epitomizes the limitations of identifying a specific genre of cloth with a particular culture. It also highlights the versatility and inventiveness of West Africa's weavers and dyers even with the most modest fashion accessories.
