Traditional Mud Cloth Mali

Traditional Mud Cloth  Mali Mud cloth  Mali African Art

This is a vintage piece of Mud cloth or Bogolanfini from Mali in West Africa. It was traditionally made by women and the fabric was made of ten handwoven narrow strips of cotton cloth which are stitched together before dyeing. The designs are made with a combination of local plant dyes and river mud which contains the essential chemicals to create the colour. They were worn as garments and often conferred status.

The mud cloth is in good sturdy condition but there are a few holes, the largest being near the edge at the bottom and visible in the last photo. There are a three other smaller ones also in the bottom section of the cloth.

This is not a modern piece and had had some use, and it is difficult for me to be precise about its date.
