Beautiful authentic African Mudcloth fabric pillow cover.
Listing is for (1) 17″x17″ pillow cover. Insert not included, sold separately here.
Natural African Mudcloth fabric with a black arrow imprint on the front and soft natural linen on the back.
Gold zipper closure. Please leave me a message when you check out if you would like a small wooden bead pull added to the zipper for no extra charge.
For the best fit I recommend an insert that is 1-2 inches bigger than the cover.
Handcrafted from authentic West African mud cloth (bògòlanfini), my pillow cover reflects the centuries-old art of mud dyeing cotton and embellishing it with distinctive tribal patterns. In a time-intensive process, local artisans bathe the cotton in natural dyes made from tree leaves and dry it in the sun, then hand paint traditional motifs using fermented river mud. Rich in meaning, the markings often tell a story about the maker or local history. Woven and dyed and finished by hand, each pillow cover is uniquely one of a kind.
