MALIAN MUD CLOTH THROW - BLACK

MALIAN MUD CLOTH THROW - BLACK

from 95.00

Handcrafted from authentic Malian mud cloth (bògòlanfini), each piece reflects the centuries-old art of mud dyeing cotton and embellishing it with distinctive tribal patterns. In a time-intensive process, local artisans bathe the cotton in natural dyes made from tree leaves and dry it in the sun, then hand paint traditional geometric motifs using fermented river mud. Rich in meaning, the geometric markings tell a story about the maker or local history. Woven and dyed by hand, each throw is uniquely one of a kind, demonstrating traditional crafting skills updated for the modern home. Use as a throw, blanket, or tapestryand is great for upholstery or to make specialty pillow cases.

Variations in motif are likely and celebrated due to the traditional handwoven process. Photos shown are representative of colors and size only.
