African Mudcloth

African Mudcloth is a handwoven textile originating in Mali also known by the name "Bogolan" or "Bogolanfini".

The word "bògòlanfini" is a composite of bɔgɔ, meaning "earth" or "mud"; lan, meaning "with" or "by means of"; and fini, meaning "cloth"

Cotton yarns are woven in narrow strips, then sewn together to create larger pieces of fabric, then dyed with fermented mud. Read more about this incredible textile HERE
