Tie-dyed Indigo Adire Oniko Textile, Nigeria

Contemporary | 66 x 45 inches | cotton, dyes | overall good condition

Perhaps the most recognizable form of West African indigo cloth, this adire oniko textile was made by tying the cotton textile tightly in order to resist the dye in certain parts.  

Indigo dyes can be made from the leaves or seeds of local indigofera or lonchocarpus plants, though synthetic dyes are also now available.
