Bogolan Mud Cloth and Indigo Textiles


Mud cloth is also known as Bogolanfini or Bogolan in the Bamana language of Mali, West Africa. 

The Bogolan textiles are made from the locally-spun cotton of West Africa.  Cotton is woven by hand in strips and sewn together, or on wide looms, creating a beautiful, textured cloth. This natural cotton cloth is then dyed by hand using traditional plants and fermented mud. Mud cloth is also known as Bogolanfini or Bogolan.

The Vintage Indigo textiles are from Mali and Burkina Faso.
