1 woven loincloth pillowcase for decoration
40 x 40 cm with zipper
The loincloth from which this pillowcase was made was handmade, so pure luxury! This loincloth is called Kourou-Kourou, which means "dots" in the Senoufo language spoken in the north of the Ivory Coast (West Africa). Kourou-kourou refers to the very original patterns chosen for this loincloth, considered a precious item used to honor festive and joyful moments (such as weddings and other celebrations). Made of pure dyed cotton yarn, this loincloth was woven on a traditional loom that has been used for centuries from generation to generation. This 40 x 40 cm pillowcase is machine washable up to 60°, as it has a zipper and can be ironed. The production of the loincloth that makes up this pillowcase required several days of work for our weavers in Africa before it was cut and assembled in the workshop in Germany, from where most of our products and items that are distributed throughout the world leave the warehouses. .
We recommend a pillow of the same size (40×40 cm)
In the washing machine to a maximum of 60 degrees
To know the history of woven loincloths, we recommend the following two books by Dr. Marie Ginette Amani-Fridrich:
-The story of a fiber
-Collections of our textiles
