Woven Textiles of Burkina Faso

I was in LA recently and went to an African street festival. Vendors sold all kinds of imported good from different countries in Africa. This hand woven textile from Burkina Faso is traditionally woven by men and the patterns have different meanings. I wish I knew what they meant. Maybe I can do some more digging and find out. I added a flannel backing to make it warmer and functional as a throw. It’s an amazing work of art as a weaving.
