Bogolanfini/mud cloth scarfs

Bogolanfini, or bogolan is a traditional craft from Mali. Locally grown cotton is woven into narrow strips by hand and then sewn together into wider pieces of fabric. These are then dyed with fermented clays and plant parts - hence their more famous names - mud cloth and patterns are printed on top. These should not be machine washed but only rinsed in cold water with a little soap/bile soap, or ventilated. Color shades on one and the same scarf can occur and should not be seen as a shortcoming, but as a sign that they are handmade and thus unique. Sizes is approximate due to their handmade nature: 60x142 cm/23.6x56 inch
