Bògòlanfini, or "Mudcloth," is a handmade Malian cotton fabric traditionally dyed with iron-rich mud. It has an important place in traditional Malian culture and has, more recently, become a symbol of Malian cultural identity.
In traditional bògòlanfini production, the cloth is soaked in a bath of dye from the leaves of the n'gallama tree (Anogeissus leiocarpa). Once it has taken on a yellow hue, the cloth is sun-dried and then painted with designs using a piece of metal or wood. The paint, carefully and repeatedly applied to outline the intricate motifs, is made of a special mud, collected from riverbeds and fermented for up to a year.
