Korhogo, is one of the most beautiful picturesque cloths from West Afrika.
Originally, it was made in the northern area of the Ivory Coast in a town called
Korhogo. It is usually found in the same venue as mud cloth and employs a similar
design process. The women spin the cotton, weave it into small strips, and prepare
the dye. The men hand sew the small strips into large pieces and using the dye,
decorate the cloth. The finished product is an off white cotton cloth depicting
humans and/or animals with a black/brown dye.

It was originally designed to protect from or give praise to particular spirits
as well as to praise and honor the hunters of the community. Over the years
the cloth has become a commodity and usually depicts a parade of characters
representing various aspects of Afrikan life.
This popular cloth is often used as a wall hanging as well as in other home/office
decor; and it has become quite fashionable to use on coats, jackets, vests,
bags, and more.
