Mud Cloth

Bogolan or Bògòlanfini means ‘made from mud or Mud cloth’ in Bambara, the main language of Mali. The Bogolan technique of dyeing and printing cotton  was originally designed in Africa for use as as camouflage, ritual protection, and a sign of status, telling a story through the use of lines, dots, and geometric shapes.


It contains no harmful chemicals and it uses dried leaves, grapes and tree bark as dye. Mud cloth is 100% cotton hand crafted material woven originally in Mali, West Africa and dyed with fermented mud. It is handmade from start to finish.
