This cloak was made using fugu from the Upper West Region of Ghana and is part of our sustainably sourced & produced collection of progressive pieces. Fugu is handwoven from scratch by our women artisans in the northern region. Cloak is then handmade in Accra by Ghanaian artisans, specially for you.
History has it that Fugu was introduced into Ghana by the Moshies who migrated from Burkina Faso and settled in the northern part of the country & the Hausas from northern Nigeria. Women in the North later used the local cotton to make threads, which were woven as Fugu for all genders & people. Fugu means ‘cloth’ in Moshie language. The Dagombas call it Bingba, while people from the south often refer to it as Batakari.
Employing environmentally friendly materials and pursuing new standards in craftsmanship, Threaded Tribes is committed to providing the highest quality, uniquely ethical essentials for your closet. Due to the nature of the fabric, tiny spaces within seams or a slight variation in pattern may naturally occur.
This relatively lightweight piece is unisex & one size.
