Product Description

Korogogo Cloth / Traditional Senufo fila cloth / Mud Cloth

Korogogo cloths are from the Korhogo people of Northern Ivory Coast. These cloths are hand woven from 100% local cotton.

Also known as fila, it is typically worn by hunters as protection from harm whilst they were hunting; not only are the symbols on fila spiritually significant, but the designs allowed the hunters to blend into their surroundings, serving as camouflage.

Fila was also commonly used in rites of passage; it was also made into graduation robes for men coming of age in the Poro (the men’s secret society), and it is made into skirts for young girls preparing for marriage. Children also wore fila cloth masks for funeral ceremonies, and the cloth was used to cover the bodies of male and female elders at their funerals.

Each korogogo tells a story that is linked to the history of the people and as a result each symbol has deep spiritual meaning that is tied to their beliefs system.

The painting here depicts a goat and androgynous human figures which represents hunters. The goat signifies male prowess and the hunters signify life’s mysteries.

This would be great as a wall hanging. It could be stretched and framed or just hung as it is.
