Côte-d'Ivoire is a republic in western Africa on the Gulf of Guinea. It is one of the most prosperous countries in Africa.

Heddle pulleys are used in strip-weaving, a process that uses very small looms to produce long, narrow strips of cloth which are later sewn together to create a larger textile, such as a blanket.

Very handsome carving of a long beaked bird.
