AFRICAN
TEXTILES




African textiles are the major form of expression
that Africans use to define themselves.

They have used cloth not only for personal adornment but also as
a powerful medium of communication for many centuries. Their
has often been overshadowed by traditional sculpture and masks
but in this day and age, we see how African textiles have become
the most significant medium by which contemporary African artists
are illuminating the connections and continuities between past and
recent modes of African artistic expression.
