Mud cloth is made using an ancient and extensive process, it has an important place in traditional Malian culture. The fabric is all hand spun into individual cloth strips. The men start the process by weaving cotton thread on a hand-held loom. Each strip of cloth is then sewn together. The entire piece of fabric is then dyed in tea made from a Bogolon tree found in Mali, West Africa. Women have traditionally painted and designed the cloth. The tea acts as a fixative for mud painted designs that are hand painted using specially prepared mud. Some parts of the fabric are then bleached after the entire process is complete to produce the white areas.Please note that as a unique, handmade textile, no two pillows are ever the same and color varies across computer monitors.
