Story Behind the Art:

The Baule are only one of two peoples in West Africa that do ikat dyeing of their weaving thread.

Ikat is the process whereby threads are tie-dyed before weaving takes place. When the cloth is woven, any section of the cloth where the threads have been previously ikat-dyed will have a rather frayed pattern between the dyed and undyed colors.
