Story Behind the Art:

Indigo Dyed Textiles of West Africa

The Dogon people of Mali have a long history of natural indigo blue dyeing, and the color is revered in Dogan culture. The dyeing process is passed down through family generations. Archaeological sites in Mali have yielded textile fragments dating as far back as the 11th century. The Yoruba of Nigeria and Mossi of Burkina Faso also have a rich history of indigo dyeing. Other west African countries with a history of indigo dyeing are Guinea, Senegal and Gambia.
