African Baoulé Pillow - perfect addition to your home décor
This cloth has a lovely, soft feel. The rich patterns in these vintage, hand woven cloths from the Ivory Coast reflect the traditions, symbols, and tribal lives of the Baoulé people.
After carding and spinning cotton fiber, the women of the villages dipped the finished yarn into plant-based dye to create the deep, rich indigo color. It was then hand woven into narrow strips and finally sewn together to create a beautiful soft cloth, which is often embellished by colorful embroidery. These wrappings were highly valued and mainly used as wraps for ceremonial purposes.
The pillow measures 19.5” x 19.5”.
*** For a perfect fit, we highly recommend choosing the “Cover with Insert” option to order the luxury 100% cotton down-proof ticking pillow insert along with the pillow cover. Our pillow covers are sewn to fit these excellent hypoallergenic feather/down inserts. ***

- Back of cover is made with vintage mangle cloth, a pure linen fabric from Germany.
- Hidden zipper closure allows removal of the insert to care for the cover.
- All fabrics are washed before sewing. For laundering my fabrics, I use Costco soap and Dr. Brunner soap.
- This Baoulé fabric is of the best quality and in great condition with no marks that I could see on this pillow. In general, signs of wear and some discoloration or spots are part of the charm and character of these vintage fabrics. Please see the photos for reference.
