SierraLeoneHeritage.org | Digital Heritage Resource: "Country cloth is a thick, heavy, cloth, traditionally made from locally grown cotton that is spun into thread, dyed, and woven into strips on a tripod loom. The strips are then sewn together edge to edge to form the finished cloth. Such cloth was, in the past, regarded as a sign or wealth and Prestige. This example is composed of 13 strips of plain weave, striped with undyed, and indigo dyed, cotton. The piece of cloth is un-hemmed."
