Painted Mud Cloth

$ 195.00

Mud cloth {traditionally called 'Bogolanfini} is one of Africa's most unusual and unique textiles. Narrow strips of handwoven cotton are stitched together into a whole cloth, then painted with patterns and symbols using a variety of natural dyes, including river mud that has been aged up to one year. Their thickness and weight is variable due to being hand woven though generally they are akin to a light-weight blanket. Each piece is unique and tells a story of its own. 85" x 65".
