Gallery51 in Philadelphia, run by the well-known antique rug dealer Craig Wallen, holds a special exhibition of indigo-dyed textiles from Mali entitled ‘The Power of Blue’ 1 August through 31 August 2014. ‘The show will be a mix of mostly older and some new pieces. The majority will be from Mali, but there will also be a few from Nigeria and Burkina Faso. Most are hand-spun cotton wraps or shawls, either tie or resist dyed Indigo-dyed Textiles of Mali’ said Craig Wallen to Jozan Magazine.
