Antique craft loom from Mali
Ref. ACT. Sold out
This kind of antique loom, which deserves to be a museum piece has been traditionally used in the dessert of Mali to produce beautiful fabrics less than 6" width which are sewn of each other.
Ancient traditional textile handicraft in Mali which comes directly from the sheep`s wool and vegetable dyes is so rooted in the popular culture that the most common expression for any problem is: Sometimes, life gets tangled as the yarn,s loom.
The answer is: Allah ka geresege an foni. May God help us to untie the skein.
To what is commonly answered: Allah ka ke nyogon Jigi an e. May God make us a light of hope for each other.
