Fulani are a nomadic peoples who have been influential in regional politics, economics, and histories throughout western Africa for over a thousand years. They played a significant role in the rise and fall of the Mossi states in Burkina and also contributed to the migratory movements of people southward through Niger and Nigeria into Cameroon. They were also responsible for introducing and spreading Islam throughout much of western Africa. The height of the Fulani empire was between the early 1800s and early 1900s. This power was consolidated under Usman dan Fodio and was centered in northern Nigeria. Dan Fodio was a devout Muslim who used religious fervor to ignite his troops to undertake a series of holy wars. Following the early success of Islamic warriors, non-Islamic Fulani joined ranks with their fellows to form an extensive and powerful empire.

Fulani people, Wodaabe people, c. 1950's, cotton embroidered with silk and cotton.

Just would like to mention something I learned in my textiles history class about the raffia cut pile fabrics in the previous posts ^

I read the Kuba people in the Congo and Zaire area make cloth exclusively out of raffia, and only the men weave and farm it but only the women will weave the "pile" kind of fabric which is also known as "kasai velvets"-- because the raffia rises out of the surface... think bath towels and rugs
There is a shop here called Maiwa with their own independent library upstairs, and you can even see these cloths in person.. the raffia threads are so dense, and it feels so surprisingly soft Recently I made a rug out of raffia too, buying the raffia just from Loomis an art store here, and it's really just like straw... so coarse
