Korhogo cloth is produced in Cote d’Ivoire by local artists on hand spun and hand-woven cotton fabric. Each piece is unique and created using stencils or freehand designs with a specially fermented paint that dries black (although other colours can be used too).

Korhogo cloth is mostly used as decorative wall coverings but also to make clothes and craft items.
