Story

Korhogo cloth is produced by the Senufo people of the Ivory Coast and named after the local village (Korhogo) where this type of cloth was developed and first produced. Symbolic pictorial scenes decorate a cotton base cloth, woven by hand on narrow single heddle looms. Textile is backed with a plush natural colored looped wool blend fabric. Korhogo cloths employ imagery and symbolism to tell stories— fish represent abundance, birds represent freedom, goats represent male prowess, and costumed hunters represent mysteries of the universe.

Historically, Korhogo cloths were worn by hunters and members of the Poro society, a secret society in Sierra Leone and Liberia exclusive to men. Textiles are dyed using fermented silt and vegetable dyes.
