The charm of vintage African cloth is in each textile's imperfection, from which we can intuit a certain story of the cloth. In Mali, it is dyed, woven into narrow strips and these strips whip-stitched by hand to create yardgoods for garments or decor.  I buy them as "panels" from my African salesman when he comes to town and then fabricate by hand and machine at Miller Upholstering shop in Minneapolis Minnesota.
