Additional Information: The exact origin of the textile is unknown; it shares known elements with Ewe textile art.   Dozens of African cultures use stripweaving techniques to create cloth for clothing or for agricultural uses.  The checker pattern is common in several cultures, but most prominently used for country cloths for rural populations.
