Weaving within the context of textile craftsmanship in the Dogon country:
The different stages of the craftsmanship process are well-defined and distributed between women and men. With the income from the cultivation of their own fields, women buy cotton, as well as other raw materials, which are then manually spun. Then they give the threads to the weavers who are always men. Men weave the webs according to the women’s commissions and are paid by the women. Women decide whether they saw, dye or directly sell the webs to the merchants.
Unlike dyers or forgers of the Dogon country, weavers do not form an endogamous group of craftsmen. They are usually farmers and only weave during the dry season, in order to have an additional source of income.
