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.
