African mudcloth is handwoven and expertly dyed using the resist method. This is a centuries old practice with cultural significance. Each design is unique, featuring one of a kind patterns that often come out like dots, ladders, butterflies or a DNA helix.
The textile 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 source our African Indigo from local dealers here in Los Angeles that we have met through the antiques market circuit.
