The description of this Nigerian wall hanging explains how the weavers of the Niger region, with their strip-weaving tradition, went to great lengths to apply this technique to patterns of North African origin. But I’d love to know whether the “odd one out” about two-fifths of the way down was deliberate or not. The effect of the one mismatched motif is — to my eyes — rather charming… but was the weaver quite as delighted with it as I am, I wonder?
I'm preparing for festive Christmas markets in Dundee and Fife.
