Description: An Adire cloth made of resist-dyed cotton in dark indigo blue over light blue. The cloth comprises two lengths joined with machine stitching down the centre. The ends are machine-hemmed and the remaining sides are the selvedge edges.
The stencil was usually metal, originally lead linings of packaging chests; the paste is cassava starch, applied with a spatula.
The cloth is decorated throughout with stylised wave motifs. This comprises linear wave motifs within lozenge or circular forms, set against a background also of different types of wave bands. There is also lettering within the design (possibly 'Inrobo' , 'Lowoal', 'Ijobaoh') and 'Abosi 1963'. There are the initials 'M.S' on the border.
The donor used this material for household furnishings.
