Abstract

Seghosen is an expensive traditional textile originating from Owo kingdom and it literally means “the cloth that takes all money”. This is because seghosen is uniquely made for special occasion like wedding ceremonies, chieftaincies, kingship installation etc. the wearer of seghosen costume is usually a wealthy or highly placed individual; a lot of respect is accorded him because the textile is considered beyond reach of common man. The focus of this paper is an exhibition review of the continuity and changes in Seghosen textile being showcased by the National commission for museums and monument, Owo, Nigeria to commemorate its 50TH anniversary of service delivery to the community and the country at large.
