Vintage African Wedding Blanket from Nigeria


Collection includes: one vintage African textile

A textile that delivers a swift kick in the mouth to a boring wall, bed, or floor, this woven wedding blanket, or djerma comes from Nigeria. Hand-dyed in bold red, orange, cobalt blue, black, and white stripes and tightly woven, it is in very good condition considering its age. I purchased it the collection of art and artifacts amassed by a couple who lived in Africa from the 1960s through the 90s. Hang on the wall or drape across a neutral couch for graphic exclamation point.  

  • Wedding blanket, hand-dyed and hand-woven cotton, multi-colored, vintage from the 1960s, very good condition (98"l x 64"w)

Shipping costs are included. Also, please note that everything I sell, and I mean everything, is used, antique, vintage, etc. That means sometimes scratched, dented, and worn. Imperfect. Not dusty, though. Or dirty.
