African Textile Dealer 

Another good site which offers not only sales of textiles but also lots of useful and beautiful graphics.

Try Adire African Textiles for a look at Asafo appliqued flags, Taurag woven grass and leather mats and all sorts of other woven and dyed fabrics. The indigo examples alone are eye candy that puts me in sensory overload. I want one of each, thank you very much.

A real education in differences of textile art from tribal group to tribal group. I was familiar with some of the more publicized forms (i.e. Kente) but woefully ignorant of many of the motifs and uses of materials used by other groups.
