About the Fabrics

Vintage Ndop (pronounced “dop”) cloth came from the Bamileke people of the grasslands in Cameroon. These textiles are exceedingly rare and were mainly used for ritual clothing and ceremonial occasions. Geometric symbols such as circles, lines and diamonds reflect tribal life and beliefs.

The process of creating this cloth was difficult and laborious. After weaving, the cloth was dyed using a traditional “resist” dying method. To prevent the indigo dye to reach all the cloth, women artisans would stitch design patterns onto the cloths with raffia fiber. When the dying process was finished, all the stitching would be unpicked to reveal the stunning tribal design. There may be a little brownish discoloration remaining from the raffia. This just tells of the many hours women spent creating these beautiful textiles.

Mangle cloths, used for the backs of the sachets, are linen fabrics that were installed in the old roller ironing presses (mangles) to protect textiles and clothing from the heat. These wonderful 60 to 100-year-old linens come from Germany and France and measure about 3 meters (nearly 10 feet) long and 90 centimeters (about 35 inches) wide.

When I first started working with these types of fabrics, I hoped to convey to my family a sense of history and different cultural traditions. I also wanted my home to connect with nature by using natural materials, instead of manmade fibers. I can hardly tell you how much we have enjoyed the wonderful items made from these beautiful fabrics!
