Cloth is Money: Textiles from the Sahel

Presented by Fitchburg Art Museum at Fitchburg Art Museum, Fitchburg MA

Cloth is Money: Textiles from the Sahel

Though made between the 1960s and 1980s, the textiles in this exhibition have antecedents that date to the 11th century.

The show illustrates the complex and timeless value of woven cloth from the Sahel, the southern border of the Sahara, by exploring weaving techniques, designs, and symbols in conjunction with the rich trade history and cultural role of textiles in the region.
