Mud cloth - also called 'bogolan' - 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 is variable, but generally they are more like a light blanket.
Usually, each cloth is a unique creation: there is only one.
Sizes vary, usually about 100 x 170 cm / 40 x 66 in.
Our Mud-cloth clutches measure 10" wide x 6" tall. The tassel color on the zipper will vary with each one. The bottom of our clutches are made of vegan leather.
