Traditionally woven on narrow looms, mud cloths are strips of cotton joined together to create one larger piece - intended to be used as a body wrap or blanket. After being sewn together, a paste is applied to create a geometric design, most of which have special meaning to the artist. The cloth is dyed with indigo and the paste is washed away to reveal the final result.

The name "mud cloth" originates from the method of using fermented mud to dye the cotton. You can read more about it here.

Keep in mind ...

Our vintage and antique pieces have traveled throughout the world and survived decades - maybe even centuries - of use. Do not expect them to be in perfect or *new* condition. Signs of their past makers and owners may be noticeable such as small holes, loose threads, & stains. In our opinion, this adds to their charm!
