Ivory Coast & USA, Five Six Textiles, Oware Lumbar Pillow
Product name: Oware Lumbar Pillow
Type of product: Lumbar Pillow Cover
Description (story of the item):
The Oware lumbar is inspired by an early 20th Century woman's wrapper woven by the Djerma people. Today in Waraniéné, the diamond motif seen in the center panel is known as Oware. The use of diamond shape is common throughout most of West African woven patterns, but their names are all slightly different depending on where
the cloth is woven. This lumbar is handwoven in raw cotton with a texture similar to that of raw silk. With use, the weave will tighten, patina, and soften.
