Adire Eleko is popular hand-dyed cloth among the Yoruba peoples, who live in Nigeria and the adjoining Republic of Benin in West Africa. Indigo-plant dye creates the characteristic blue color, which is most often applied to white factory-made cloth. Patterns are created by painting or stenciling starch, usually made from cassava flour, onto the cloth before dying. Starched areas resist the dye, taking on a lighter hue than the unstarched parts, which readily absorb the indigo.Made in the USA
