African Baule Cloth is a new textile love of mine. Prior to becoming an African Textile collector, I wasn't familiar with the beautiful garment wraps know as Baule Cloth from the Ivory Coast of Africa. They have become a boho-style favorite for interior design and garments alike.
Baule Cloth is also popular for a look known as Jungalow Style. Vintage Baule cloth is used as pillow covers, throws, and window valances because the Ikat fabric comes in an endless range of color combinations.
So next time you need to add a bit of relaxed color to your decor, try adding a piece of African Baule Cloth to the mix. You can find a nice selection of these fabrics in my Morrissey Fabric on line store, or in my Etsy Shop.
African Baule Cloth, especially the vintage fabrics from the Ivory Coast, usually have shades of blue ranging from dark indigo to powder blue. But you can find some Baule cloth with no blue in the design at all, but I didn't have any in my current inventory to publish!
Boho Style incorporates fabrics from around the globe, and African ikat baule cloth is one of the easiest to work with.
Happy sewing and happy decorating!_
