Description

African Mudcloth (or ‘Bogolanfini’ which translates from the Bambara language as ‘bogo’ meaning earth or mud; ‘lan’ meaning with and ‘fini’ meaning cloth) are unique textiles that are created using traditional techniques that have been passed on through the generations.
Cotton is firstly handwoven on a narrow loom into thin strips. These strips are then sewn together to form a large piece of cloth. A special fermented mud is then used as a paste to create symbols on the cloth to tell a story. The cloth is laid out to dry in the sun and is then cracked off to reveal a pattern. Each piece is unique and every symbol has a different meaning. Bogolan cloth from Mali is culturally important as it has recently been transformed into a symbol of national identity.
Mudcloth can be made with thick or thin cotton weave. Both types are very textural and soft to touch, rustic in aesthetic value and are all handmade.
