Vintage African fabric made in Benin by Sotiba USA. A lightweight cotton that measures 31" x 41" wide. Selvage edges are surged to prevent fraying. NOTE AS IS -- there are 4 tape residue sticky spots (2 on each weft side) that You will have to work around -- they do not affect that much area of the fabric - only about 1" in 4 places along the selvage edges. The block print has right and left facing rows of Egyptians holding the Ankh cross above their heads. These are about 4.5" tall -- they have a vertical repeat of about 13". Diamond shaped dots make the background. The overall color is a light burgundy with black and gold. Colors matched as close as possible.
Other than the 4 sticky tape residue areas, this is in excellent condition. Very light weight. Please use the ruler to help with scale.
The last photo shows how all fabric orders leave my shop -- neatly folded, tied with ribbon trim, and wrapped in vintage pattern paper with a vintage ephemera on top.
Thank you for visiting my little "mom no pop" fabric shop where I enjoy finding VHTF and OOP fabrics in all motifs --
