Amarum

SKU: 10592S Categories: ,
The Nigerian Collection is inspired by cloths used for ceremonial and status garments. The original cloths would have been woven from silk gathered in the wild, then augmented with threads in more vibrant hues procured from passing caravans or recuperated from other garments, as Nigerians did not produce these. The prints in this collection seek to replicate the varied sandy and beige hues of wild anaphe silk. Amarum is a very dry-textured silk tussah with a printed design inspired by an inventive weaving technique that uses floating wefts, sometimes referred to as Nigerian lace.
