Teal Cotton African Mud Cloth (Bògòlanfini) Textile from Mali West Africa
This beautiful piece of teal Mud Cloth (traditionally called Bògòlanfini) fabric is from Mali, West Africa. The name quite literally translates into "earth with cloth." Mud Cloth is usually woven by men, then dyed by women. It is worn by both men and women, and has great cultural significance to the people of Mali. Mud Cloth is traditionally made in earth tones of brown, tan, and black. Recently, bright colors have made their way into the local and world markets. I'm loving this teal! It would make a beautiful wall hanging!
Fabric measures 43" wide x 66" long.
This fabric is Strip Cloth, meaning it is comprised of strips of fabric that have been sewn together. This piece is made of 9 strips. How about using it as a wall hanging, beach or picnic blanket, bed cover, or table runner, as is. Or how about sewing your own fabulous creation? Skirt, curtains, shirt, bag, the possibilities are endless.
A portion of all WSW sales will be donated to The Compassion Collective, which works to feed, clothe, shelter, and save our refugee and homeless sisters, brothers, and children in the US and worldwide.
