The TIV Bag

$200.00

Handwoven (Aso-oke) Totebag

Quantity

This tote-bag handwoven, thread after thread, and with love was named after the Tiv people.

Tiv constitute approximately 5% of Nigeria’s total population, and number over 14 million individuals throughout Nigeria and Cameroon. The Tiv language is spoken by about 15 million people in Nigeria with a few speakers in Cameroon.

The Tiv national attire is the black-and-white-striped anger. When the Tiv people arrived at their current location several centuries earlier, they discovered that the zebra they used to hunt for meat and skin, used for ceremonial attire, was not native to the area. When they acquired the skill of the loom, they decided to honor their heritage by weaving a cloth with black-and-white stripes, reminiscent of the zebra skin; this would then be made the preferred attire.

The Tivs are known for their artistic prowess, which storytelling is one of them.
