Korhogo is a handspun, handwoven, hand-painted cotton fabric produced in the Ivory Coast. The cloth is named for the village of Korhogo in the northern part of the West African country. The designs are created with a specially fermented dyestuff that turns black over time. Along with various types of bird motifs that signify beauty, grace, fertility, and freedom, Korhogo panels typically include figures of hunters, fish, goats, crocodiles, and foliage. Because the bird figure represents the feminine traits of beauty and grace, it makes a fitting and dramatic accent to this classic jute tote bag.
