Vintage Nigerian Textile – Aso Olona

£220.00

The Yoruba of the Ijebu region have long been renowned for the richness and complexity of their woven cloth; this cloth is generally referred to as Aso Olona, which when translated means, cloth with designs or patters. The cloth is woven on a upright loom by Yoruba women in the vicinity of the city of Ijebu-Ode.

The Aso Olona is most highly valued. Traded widely in the Niger Delta area since the 15th century, the Portuguese exported these textiles to Brazil as trade items, there known as “pano da costa” (cloth from the coast). Among the geometric and zoomorphic motifs is that of the chameleon, the national symbol of Ijebu.
