This is a beautiful indigo striped mud cloth from Mali. We love the Farmhouse Modern style of this vintage textile.
Making these beautiful textiles is a very time consuming and intricate process, the cloth is handwoven in narrow strips and the hand sewn together to make a larger textile.
It is resist dyed in a two stage process using a mud mixture. This particular piece has a a faded vintage feel, soft hand feel and is in nice vintage shape with no holes in the body of the cloth. These pieces often have gaps in the seams but this one is in good shape. Any gaps that appear can be quickly closed with a few stitches.
