The woven textile is carefully applied to a linen substrate, which provides a border between the textile and frame. This piece is offered in our lucite frame. Our signature gold St. Frank plate is featured in the bottom right-hand corner of each piece.

Polishing

Surface gloss can be maintained by using a soft cloth and specialty plastic cleaner or polish, following cleaning fluid container instructions.

Cleaning

Begin by gently blowing away any loose dust or dirt from the lucite surface. Using a mild soap solution or a plastic cleaner and a non-abrasive lint-free cloth, wipe the surface using light pressure. To remove grease, oil, or tar deposits use hexane or kerosene followed by a soap solution.

Removing Scratches

Fine scratches may be removed by hand polishing with a plastic polish scratch remover. Remove all residue and polish with a soft cloth.

Framed textiles are custom framed once they are ordered. Allow 4-5 weeks for framing and delivery. Expedited options may be available by emailing service@stfrank.com.

This item is fully refundable if returned within 30 days of delivery.

Provenance

This dance skirt was traditionally worn by Kirdi women for rituals and rites of passage, such as marriage and the presentation of a newborn child. In addition to being decorative, the skirt was worn to protect against evil. As the dance skirt was only worn by women of marrying age, it was also seen as a sign of maturity. Different styles of dance skirts denote age, social status, and ethnic origin. For example, dance skirts with cowrie shells, such as this piece, represent status and prestige.
