Black & White African Mudcloth

$150
Product info

We love textiles — especially textiles that are rich in history and meaning, like our Black and White African Mudcloth. An age-old Malian craft, mudcloth, or bògòlanfini, has been crafted by West African people since roughly the 12th century. An arduous process that takes weeks to complete, this traditional textile starts with narrow strips of cotton fabric, which are stitched together to create a larger whole. Our Black and White African Mudcloth is dyed using the mashed and boiled leaves of native wolobugun trees until it takes on a yellow hue. After sun-drying, the fabric is hand-painted with a natural black pigment made from fermented river mud, creating minimalist geometric motifs that are rich in meaning. Once these designs have dried, the yellow is bleached away, resulting in this simple, stark textile. Filled with cultural significance and symbolism, we love our Black and White African Mudcloth as a global layer or wall hanging. Handmade from start to finish, no two are alike.
