Vintage Fulani Wedding Blanket

Traditionally handwoven for Fulani weddings in West Africa, these textiles are valued for their weight, warmth and intricate brocade patterns. Nomadic shepherds, the Fulani tribe weave from sheep’s wool and cotton, then sew the panels together to create large textiles. A Fulani family likely commissioned this abstract cream, black and earth-toned blanket to cover a newlywed couple’s wedding bed.
