The Bògòlanfini textiles, handmade and fairtrade

I just love these “rough”, traditional Bògòlanfini textiles of the Bamana people of Mali in West Africa. The handmade feeling is total. Just look at the bleeding patterns and the visible hand stitches. Bògòlanfini or bogolan is a Malian cotton fabric traditionally dyed with fermented mud. I’m obviously not the only one who enjoy these textiles because every time they are back in stock in the shop they sell out quickly.


The process of making these textiles is from what I understand it, rather complex. Beginning with the growing of cotton and gathering mud which the artists keep in pots for a certain time before use. Tip: google “bogolanfini” and look att the pattern treasures. Above Lines bedspread, below Lines pillow case.

Here a peep of the Bògòlanfini bedspread that lying on our bed.

Book that would fit my bookshelf African Mud Cloth.

Tiles

Would use them mixed something like this. Examples how the patterns look side by side.

They would probably look very tiny in our house though, the “Floor and wall tiles for every room in your dollhouse”.
