Mud Cloth Blanket
Genuine hand-painted mud cloth from Mali is one of Africa’s most unusual and unique textiles.
Narrow strips of handwoven cotton are stitched together into a whole cloth, then painted with patterns and symbols using a variety of natural dyes, including river mud that has been aged up to one year. As these cloths are handwoven, the thickness and weight are variable, but ours are similar to a light blanket. Each one is unique. The small ones are lovely for a couch or bed throw, and the large as a bedspread or large beach blanket.
