This fabric is called "Chéval", or horse. Do you know the story behind it?

  • Tarila Wakker tekerebo

    Jumping Horst

  • Joop Martens

    In Nigeria (IGBO) this design is called 'Jumping horse'. However in Abidjan and more Francophone countries it is called: 'Je cours plus vite que ma rivale'. The name is created in the years when polygamy was accepted. Now we say it is in case of a mistress. In African Francophone countries they talk about a 'deuxieme bureau' (the seond office)!
