Mud Cloth Textile | Black
Our Mud Cloth textile is made from hand dyed fabric that originated from the people of Mali. Bogolan, better known as Mud Cloth is a handmade Malian cotton fabric traditionally dyed with fermented mud.
The process of making the fabric is both time consuming and labor intensive. It involves starting with a white hand-spun cotton, and then applying the designs with mud, rust and a variety of natural dyes. The mud is usually collected from ponds and river beds and left to ferment for over a year in a clay jar.
Our authentic Mud Cloth fabric is more than a simple textile; it is an art-form used to tell the story of a person, explain the creation of the world, or simply express the artistic vision of the artisan.
Our Mud Cloth textiles are one of a kind and will vary in size, pattern and color. No two are the same.
