Description

"Most commonly ivory-toned with delicate black geometric patterns, Mudcloth, or Bogolanfini, is an ancient Malian textile (dating back to the 12th century). Traditionally, it involves coarse, hand-spun cotton strips going through a long series of dyeing processes—first in a bath with leaves and branches, then numerous dye cycles in fermented mud (hence the name)—to achieve minimalist, symbolic designs."

An elegant handmade lightweight scarf made out of organic cotton and natural dyes featuring an open weave and decorative patterns common in Mudcloth textiles. Lightweight and comfortable, this scarf is high quality, hand made and imported from Mali. A true piece of authentic fashion.

Measures approximately 78 inches in length and 14 to 15 inches in width.

Each is scarf is made by hand in Mali by local artisans with great care. They may vary slightly in size, color and pattern. This is what makes each scarf unique and a true piece of African Art. Incorporate elements from Mother Africa into your wardrobe.
