FULANI
Aprons 21-24

From Left to Right:

Apron 21 12.5" high x 5" wide 12 bead strands $125
Apron 22 11.5" high x 4.5" wide 11 bead strands $125
Apron 23 11.5" high x 5" wide 9 bead strands $125
Apron 24 10.5" high x 3" wide 8 bead strands $125

These aprons have been vetted as authentic but with little use.

Aprons 21 and 23 have leather bands for wear.

The Fulani, many of whom are nomadic, live in an area from Mali in the west to Cameroon in the east. Modesty aprons, cache-sex jewelry, denote age, status and social condition. They were worn to attract attention and protect against evil.
