This wallpaper is inspired by vintage aso oke textiles from the Yoruba people of southwestern Nigeria. Yoruba aso oke textiles, traditionally woven on narrow hand looms by men, were worn on special occasions, such as engagements, weddings, and naming ceremonies for babies. The textile used to create this pillow features both natural beige wild silk and the openwork style, defined by eyelets joined by decorative weft stringing. This style, developed after the arrival of Europeans in Nigeria, was inspired by Spanish lace designs.
