Description
Reversible antique Nigerian Yoruba fabric from 1950’s lined with red Mink and hood. Woven by Ijebu Yoruba women in the town of Ijebu-Ode and its surroundings, these extraordinary cloths are used as insignia of office by Ijebu chiefs and members of a society known as Ogboni (which in the past had responsibilities for the worship of the Earth deity and advised the king.) A statement that will not leave unnoticed, this timeless Carlo Tivioli garment remains forever a masterpiece.
