Vintage African Indigo Mudcloth Lumbar Pillow | LAHAINA 12x20
The Lahaina pillow
The little Lahaina has pretty gold metallic threads, a beautiful solid indigo background and a white hand dyed pattern.
This accent pillow was made handmade in North Carolina, hand painted in Mali, West Africa. Mudcloth is woven and expertly dyed with fermented mud, a centuries old practice with significance in cultural identity for the Malians.
The design has become a must have here in the states, and thus an important export for West Africa. It is becoming more and more prevalent in America's fashion and home decor scene.
We include a poly/down blend pillow insert, with just the right amount of chop for a casual laid-back look. When you take our pillows out of the box, they are ready to toss in to the mix in your home.

Mudcloth is woven and expertly dyed with fermented mud and/or organic indigo as a centuries old practice with significance in cultural identity. Whether tied and dyed in the ancient indigo vats of Nigeria, or hand painted with fermented mud in Mali - each piece is created by hand and carries a story unto itself.
These rich colors, tribal patterns and geometric motifs have become a must have here in the states, and an important export for West Africa.
Mudcloth has only become more and more desirable in America's fashion and home decor scene as we seek out one of a kind, handmade goods with a story.
Please keep in mind that variations may occur and that the eccentricities of the piece, in its hand-dyed quality are its most endearing features. We are careful to hand inspect all of the pillow covers after they have been dyed for your home.
Our pillows are produced in North Carolina and Los Angeles with care, and an eye for distinct quality and craftsmanship.
