Collection: Bògòlanfini or bogolan - Mud Cloth

Bògòlanfini or bogolan (Bambara: bɔgɔlanfini; “mud cloth”) is a handmade Malian cotton fabric traditionally dyed with fermented mud. Historically the men would weave the fabric and the women would dye it resulting in these beautiful patterns. The cloth and the patterns have an important place in traditional Malian culture and has, more recently, become a symbol of Malian cultural identity.

Our collection uses multiple patterns to form a quilt checkerboard effect. If you are looking for a specific pattern please use the contact us form.
