Vintage Indigo Throw Blanket from Mali - Dix

  • Beautiful hand-woven and dyed indigo cotton blankets from the Dogon tribes of Mali. Some pieces are dyed using a resist technique, others are pure blue and some have beautiful hand-embroidery in pop colors; all are gorgeous. This blanket is woven with dark indigo and cream threads with light orange stripes throughout and discrete raspberry pink and bright yellow embroidery (as pictured).
  • We seek out the very best quality pieces, all were used, loved, and are extremely soft from laundering and wear. The fabric is made from hand-woven strips that are stitched together to create a large cloth. They were commonly used as wrap-around skirts and have been repaired repeatedly over the years. We've scoured each blanket using a professional textile detergent and made minor repairs.
  • If you are someone who admires "patina" and pieces with a story, these are for you! Lovely draped over the arm of the couch, the foot of the bed or on the wall as a large art piece.
    > each blanket is unique and tells the story of the maker and it's past life 
    > small holes, spot repairs and other signs of use only add to the charm of the piece 
    > size: 42" x  50" exclusive of fringe
    > each piece is pre-laundered using a professional textile detergent

    Details & Care: Launder alone, in cool water with a mild detergent. Hang to dry.
