Artisan Story
We carefully select African indigo mud cloths from a collective that not only provides job opportunities but also donates a portion of each sale to schools and orphanages in Mali. Each mud cloth is then cut and constructed by our in-house seamstress, Natalie. 

  • We recommend dry cleaning.
  • Since our mud cloths are vintage and come directly from Mali—and though they’ve been thoroughly laundered—there may be some marks or imperfections. We feel these add to the uniqueness and soul of this special fabric.

African Mud Cloths

Traditional mud cloths, or Bògòlanfini, come from Mali where the men weave cloth strips from hand-loomed cotton and the women dye the fabric in baths of leaves and bark. Motifs signifying historical events and Malian proverbs are applied with a type of fermented mud, after which the cloths are dried in the sun. The mud is then washed off to reveal a chemical reaction on the fabric. The end result is a one-of-a-kind, beautifully rendered pattern.
