Issued from the rich textile collections housed by the IMA – which has been collecting African textiles since 1918 – the exhibition gathers over 60 items and prestigious cloth pieces, as well as ritual clothes used on the occasion of ceremonies, embellished with pearls and various ornaments.

This comprehensive overview of the art of weaving is comprised of pieces from Morocco, Tunisia, Nigeria, Ghana, Mali, Sierra Leone, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Cameroun, Ivory Coast, Ethiopia and South Africa.”
