Serape- Vintage African Ikat Thin Stripe with Boro Accents

African Ikat Cloth is transformed into a versatile Serape wrap crafted exclusively for Dixon Rand. Each one-of-a-kind textile is hand selected by the artisan and then washed and softened to perfection. Small hits of boro stitched appliques make this a collectible treasure. 

African textiles have had and still have an exceptional significance as a means of communication, information and mutual association within particular communities. There is spiritual and historical significance in not only the choice of colors, dyes and type of threads used, but also in the decorative element. The symbols used and the figural compositions which are often directly related to historical proverbs and events. They represent a form of story telling often taking the place of the written word and convey messages of importance for an individual or family (tribe).  

This style has a large opening that allows this style to be worn as a Poncho or turned sideways as an off the shoulder wrap. The length varies but most hit right at mid thigh. A unisex style (hey guys...Clint doesn't have a lock on serape style) that can double as a beach cover or festival blanket.
