There’s something timeless about African Mudcloth. Also known as Bògòlanfini (earth with cloth), these traditional textiles are handmade in Ghana from several small 5” strips of fabric that are woven on a loom, sewn, and hand-painted using fermented mud and plant dyes. Traditional Mudcloth is steeped in rich history, with the symbols depicted often being secretive or known to only a select community. Initially a women-made textile, the skills and messages in the fabric were passed from mother to daughter. Our African Mudcloth pillows strive to honour these traditions, and are assembled into pillows right here in our Guelph, ON warehouse.
They feature a brass zipper enclosure and linen backing.
Note: Due to the nature of the fabric, each pattern may vary slightly from pillow to pillow.
