Fitiri

£85.00

A limited collection of handwoven Bogolanfini fabrics from Mali, West Africa.
‘Bogolan’ (for short) is also known as mudcloth, due to the traditional weaving, dyeing and painting techniques that have been used for centuries.  The process, which involves meticulously weaving raw cotton, layers of fermented mud, clay, dyes from indigenous trees, and sewing all the pieces together, can take several seasons to complete.
