African Mudcloth

Mudcloth (bogolanfini) from West Africa is the centuries-old art of mud dyeing cotton. In a time intensive process, local artisans soak the cotton in natural dyes then hand paint traditional geometric patterns using fermented river mud and bark. Rich in the meaning, the geometric markings often tell a story about the marker or local history.

Woven and dyed by hand making each piece truly one of a kind.
