Hove MBiri Zimbabwe wrap around skirt

Shipping to United States: Free
Sorry, this item has sold.

This is a Hove Mbiri painted fabric -- with African or Tiki totem like hand painted motif on a brown tie dyed cotton ground. I understand that the artist did these fabric paintings in the 70s and is from Zimbabwe. This fabric is already made into a wrap around skirt -- it is in excellent condition -- but I am offering it here for the fabric. There are 10 of the African masks totems painted on top of the light brownish tie dyed fabric. There is a narrow waistband which wraps through a slot. It is hemmed, not lined, has no maker tag, cotton and has terra cotta clay, black and light brown earth tones.

Measured at the waist band across it is 36" wide
Measured at the sweep it is 58" wide
The length is 28" not measuring the waist band

I have hand soaked and cleaned this and it air dried. The tie dying is hand done and there are uneven dying areas that are common for dying by hand. The painted masks are on top of the brown tie dye as shown in photos. Convo me if you would like to see more pictures.
