Bogolanfini (Mudcloth) made in the tribal traditions by the Bamana (Bambara) people of Mali, West Africa. Hand-spun cotton threads are hand-woven using narrow wooden looms into strips of cloth. The cloths are hand-dyed in small vats using local flora and fermented earth from the Niger riverbed. The strips are then stitched together to create the mudcloth. Symbolic designs are often hand-painted using stencils or drawn freehand using sticks, dyes and bleach.
