We hope you Enjoy these design created with the traditional Mali
mudcloth imported from Africa. It is a technique of dying cotton cloth with mud.
Each piece is 100% cotton and hand-made. The cloth is soaked in a
tea made from the bark of a tree. Using wood or other things, the design
is then painted on with a solution of mud. The fabric is washed and the
solution is reapplied.
Each pattern has symbolism behind it. Among other things-family,
social status, a person's character or occupation. And, some symbols have
stories behind them. No two pieces will be exactly the same; There may be slight
differences in pattern, size, intensity etc.
