Le Baoulé II, tailored and fitted, short sleeve shirt finds its name and roots from the Baoulé tribe of Côte d’Ivoire. The traditional fabric is originally handmade by local artisans using a tenth century technique:
  • Artisans, mostly women, use a drop-spindle tool to convert raw cotton into thread or yarn.
  • The yarn is traditionally dyed with natural dyes, either mineral or vegetable based, usually from indigo leaves.
  • Afterwhile, the colored threads are handwoven by the a local weaver into narrow warps of textiles which are sewn edge to edge to a form a full fabric.
Besides its quality and durability, the finished fabric also offers a wide range of geometric ikkat patterns and exciting color combinations.
