Why We Love It
This design brings in global style into your decor in such an approachable way with its neutral color scheme. We love the geometric style and handmade texture that defines mudcloth.
The process involves multiple steps. Men traditionally create the fabric in strips which are pieced together. Women traditionally dye the cloth using special clay gathered from their region. Your purchase supports artisans working in fair trade conditions with sustainable work and a living wage.
