Have a look at this short video of the making of West African Mud cloth in Burkina Faso! The Mud Cloth also known as the ‘Bogolanfini’ or ‘Bogolan’ is an important part of culture in both Burkina Faso and Mali and the process is both amazing and fascinating. Traditionally worn by hunters as camouflage and worn by women after child birth the Bogolanfini is a ritual for protection, today the making and trade of the cloth is also an important part of supporting and developing the community. We have a few of these beautiful mud cloths available in store!
