This piece was originally designed as a wall hanging, but in the process of photographing the homewares collection we realized that it could also very easily be used as a throw, how great it that!!?
We sourced this fabric from a New York based family owned company who imports the textiles directly from Mali. This fabric is often called "Mud Cloth" but is also known by the name "Bogolan". This handmade textile is created in Mali with handwoven cotton which is dyed with mud...it's simply incredible, and inarguably beautiful. The patterns are passed down over the years, with each shape having its own meaning.
IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ
Due to the handmade nature of these textiles every single one is different and I'm unable to get identical ones to previously sold ones, they are literally one of a kind! PLEASE NOTE: YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE THE ONE PICTURED IN THE FIRST IMAGE, IT HAS ALREADY SOLD. Please see image #5 for available options and select one at checkout! Please note images in Option 5 are digital mockups, these tapestries still need to be sewn, this item is made to order.
Please note exact size can also vary from panel to panel, but it will be the same approximate size as the one shown.

Due to the handmade nature of this fabric there will however be slight variations or imperfections in the weave or printing, and we consider this to be part of the beauty of this fabric. You can really see the handmade nature of the textile, the touch of the human hand is a powerful thing in and of itself.
The top and bottom are finished with 1 1/4" wide waxed linen binding. This fabric has the look of leather while being much easier to care for.
I've finished the binding in a way that allows you to slip a 1/2" wide curtain rod through it, making for easy display.
The bottom edge of the tapestry has five large tassels which I've hand tied and glued then handstitched to the binding. The tassels are made of 100% wool yarn with a natural cotton loop at the center. These little guys are very time consuming to make, but the end result is pure bohemian luxury.
