This fabric is inspired by mud cloth, or bògòlanfini in Bambara, a traditional West African textile. As the name suggests, it is created with fermented mud to produce pigment for dye. The geometric patterns represent animals or other objects from the natural world. Mud cloth was traditionally worn by hunters, offering camouflage, ritual protection, and status. More recently, mud cloth has become a symbol of Malian cultural identity and has been exported as an iconic international textile used in fashion, home design, and fine art.
