African Jacquard’s new Metallic Collection is nothing short of a coup de maître. At the core of the collection is the Metallic Bogolan throw in Gold and Copper. This luxurious and complex piece of textile is the result of months of technical design and testing. It combines intricate waffle structures mixed with African symbols and patterns, woven together with the alluring colors of precious metals
Since ancient times, the use of precious metals has been used as decoration and embellishment in the textiles of kings and queens, often referred to as The Cloth of Gold. As a civilization we have come a long way since then, and although this collection of artistry and skill may not include actual gold threads, the symbolism behind the colors of the different precious metals is certainly intended. Silver; representing clarity and self-reflection, Copper, symbolizing charisma and artistic creativity, and Gold, the emblem of prosperity.
