Handwoven African Mud Cloth Bambara | African Fabrics (Black/White)
Nothing makes a fashion statement better than mudcloth!
These mudcloth pieces, which are made in Mali are “Lapa” size. Approx. 38″ – 45″ wide x 63″ – 68″ long. Sizes may vary as these are hand made. Traditional African mudcloth sheets are handwoven and made one at a time. No two pieces of mud cloth are exactly alike, so the colors shown are available, but the exact patterns vary from one piece to the next. They’re great for clothing, home decoration, crafts and other creative pursuits. African artisans hand-dye symbols into these fabrics in order to tell stories of their villages and African proverbs. Mudcloth has a long tradition of being used by West African warriors and hunters to camouflage themselves. Nowadays, people across the globe are wearing them to stand out and celebrate their connection to the African continent. M-F050
