NW496 - Very rare mid C20th cloth woven from a white bast fibre called ebase in a remote village called Somorika high in rugged hills near the Niger-Benue confluence in central Nigeria. The fibre was obtained by pounding narrow branches of a particular tree in a mortar until they softened and broke down and could be spun to make a soft heavy thread. On these cloths it was combined with indigo dyed cotton, forming a very high status wrapper cloth for high ranking ladies in the village.
