These mud cloth squares are perfect to make cushions or little bags, purses and other craft projects...


Our Mud Cloth is a wonderful way of bringing african culture and authenticity into your space. With the use of earthy tones they are a great addition to most spaces as a throw or even as cushions. Each one is unique and has been handmade using traditional techniques by artisans in Mali. Because of this sometimes the motifs in the full size image may be in a different order to that seen in this photo but the same motifs will be features as the ones here. it's hard to tell the difference though.

First the local cotton is loosely spun and then woven in strips from the soft spun cotton. Then the strips are sewn together to create a large piece. The designs are painted, stamped and dip dyed varying combinations and designs through a process of several months. The different types of iron rich muds reacting with each other are what create the different colours. Traditionally these would be worn by the local people but they also make wonderful homewares too.
