The Mossi weave cotton, it consists in a seasonal activity, practised during the dry season, supplementing the agricultural work during the rainy period.
The female weaver works seated on a stool.
The bar of the breast beam lays on the hips.
Feminine looms allow pregnant women at near term to weave. Regarding the weaving, strictly speaking, this machine produces widest bands - between 30 and 40 centimetres wide - than those of masculine looms.
We can sometimes note traces of wear, some partially unstitched bands, dyes which slightly faded off over the years.
