This is part of my new Mud Cloth Collection! This scarf can add flair to several of my ReDesign La Ponchas, Ponchos, and Ruanas in this collection.

Achieving a beautiful balance of masculine and feminine energies, mud cloth from Mali is first hand-woven by men in long strips which are then sewn together. After that, the women add the creative designs. These designs are achieved through a time intensive process involving the fermenting of vegetation used to soften the fabric, followed by the application of various kinds of natural clay to create the designs and colors. The patterns reflect meaningful symbols, some of which are considered sacred. The Bamana people of Mali wear this textile in various important ceremonies.

Because these items are hand-crafted by local artisans using traditional techniques, slight variations may occur. Note that colors may vary according to each display monitor.
