**A Great Discount Is Available!!---Click on my Name Above (Listed By...) to read about my Multi-Sale Discount Offer in my Closet Profile** This gorgeous never-worn Grand Boubou of heavy Amethyst hand-loomed Aso Oke fabric woven with Silver Threads and ornately embroidered in white, is a once in a lifetime heirloom quality treasure and with quality and workmanship indicative of the highest status. The Formal Sokoto, or tie-up trousers, Dashiki (Tunic), Robes and Hood are all exquisite and garments worthy of a Chieftain. The Dashiki is worn under the Robe, and both are worn above the pants. The sleeves of the gown are worn folded in pleated fashion at the shoulders. The effect is successful in its intent -- to be incredibly impressive! *** Historically, the Grand Boubous' origin lies with the clothing worn by the Islamic Tukulor, Mand and Songhai peoples of the historic 8th Century Takrur and Ghana Empires, and 13th Century Mali and Songhai Empires. The use of the grand boubou as clothing became widespread throughout the West African region with the migration of semi-nomadic groups such as the Fulani, and traders such as the Dyula and Hausa. Today, the grand boubou is worn by Muslims, Christians in West Africa, the African diaspora, and very recently, even among Bantu people in East, Southern and Central Africa.
