African Mud Cloth - AD0037



Textiles express the individuality of a place in a way that is completely unique. Our collection of handcrafted West African mud cloths other wise known as bògòlanfini reflects the centuries-old art of mud dyeing cotton and embellishing it with distinctive tribal patterns. 

Local artisans bathe strips of cotton in natural dye’s and dry them in the sun before stitching them together to form a rectangle. They then hand paint traditional geometric motifs using fermented river mud. The geometric markings often tell a story. Woven and dyed by hand, no two pieces are exactly alike.
