HAUSA, MAN'S ROBE, Nigeria

Created from strip-woven cotton cloth, these were joined, then embroidered in the traditional patterns such as "eight knives" , and several other elements including the numerous eyelets called "a thousand ant holes". These garments would have been used for special occasions. They can be worn, the backs are decorated as well, or displayed by hanging.

Numbers 2, 7 & 10 are much newer forms, with appliqued cloth, machine stiched on, to imitate the old robes.
