Malinke box of cards. 12 blank cards/box (4 of each of 3 patterns). Talking Textiles cards are paper prints of authentic hand-woven Malinke strip cloth as done in northern Ivory Coast weaving villages. Each motif has a proverbial meaning written on the back of the card; either wishing good luck, symbolizing respect, or a thank you for hospitality received. The paper has a cloth-like appearance and will enchant those who receive one by old-fashioned snail mail from you.
