Indigo Bogolanfini apx 59" x 45"
The African textiles, bogolanfini, or mud cloths, are traditionally woven by the women and dyed by the men of Mali, they were originally used for hunters' shirts and womens' wraps. The cloth is hand woven in traditioanl strips aproximately 15cm (5.9") wide and dyed by an age old process using local flora and mud. These strips are sewn together to make a whole cloth.
Very soft and drapey.
Because it is vintage, handwoven and hand dyed there may be imperfections in the cloth,
which is a testament to its age and life and travels.
