Handwoven African Mud Cloth Throw
Handcrafted from authentic West African mud cloth (b˛g˛lanfini), our throw reflects the centuries-old art of mud dyeing cotton and embellishing it with distinctive tribal patterns. In a time-intensive process, local artisans bathe the cotton in natural dyes made from tree leaves and dry it in the sun, then hand paint traditional geometric motifs using fermented river mud. Rich in meaning, the geometric markings often tell a story about the maker or local history. Woven and dyed by hand, each throw is uniquely one of a kind.
