This is in addition to the knowledge of any guests you have over. In the West African nation of Mali, there is a tradition of wearing mud cloth dating back to the 12th century. Mud-cloth becomes bogolanfini when translated into Bambara, the native language of Mali. Bogolanfini consists of three Bambara words: BOGO, lan, and fini. Bogo translates as “earth” or “mud”, lan translates as “with”, and fini translates as “cloth”.
- Hand Loom: Hand-loom textiles have a quality of richness and depth missing from commercially produced textiles a handloom requires human power, no electricity to manually weave a fabric, weaving warp and weft yarns together this is how it’s been done for as long as we know fabric to have existed, there’s is a reason it’s been around for thousands of years.
- Hand Block Printing: The process of block printing begins with wooden blocks. Woodcarvers cut designs into blocks of various shapes and size these blocks are then dip in vegetable dye colors and stamped onto cloth as if they were stamps. Different blocks for different colors are use.
We suggest using a pillow insert anywhere between 1-2 inches larger than the pillow cover for a stuffed look.
The backside is a good-quality canvas fabric with zipper closure. The durable design combined with genuine craftsmanship ensures a long lifetime.
