Overall Condition Fair. Most of our pieces have spent decades on at least two continents, and have been treasured by several owners.   Small splits, scrapes and cracks are a normal part of their patina attesting to their age and extensive use.  We examine each piece carefully when we receive it and report any damage we find in our listings.  Please look carefully at the pictures which may also reveal condition and damage.
Damage/Repair General wear

Additional Information: A small tunic or shirt crafted from cotton cloth possibly died with indigo. The indicative aspect of the garment is the colorful embroidery attributed to the Wodaabe.
