The hangings are batik typical African decoration, with their designs and colors.
The manufacturing process of batik is to apply, on a piece of white cotton, the dye bath, beginning with the lightest tones. Melted wax is applied to areas that must be preserved before soaking to preserve the lighter areas. After the drying operation can be repeated with a different color and as many times as necessary. In the end you get a fabric that combines different shades or contrasts juxtaposed or superimposed, forming all sorts of reasons. The origins of batik back to a little over a thousand years, and this printing technique, is found in several communities in West Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
