This is beautiful Piece of African Mucloth from the Dogon Tribal People of
Mali. Bogolan cloth or mudcloth once despised as rural non-Islamic, peasants
cloth has transformed into a symbol of national identity for Mali. The creation
of most Bogolan cloth begins in the Beledougou Bamana area north of Bamako. The
manufacture of this cloth is a long painstaking, laborious, process. It is
woven by men on the local version of the narrow strip loom. First raw materials
are hand processed and woven into plain white cloth strips about 12 centimeters
wide. After the cloth is washed and allowed to shrink while drying, it is then
soaked in a brown solution made from pounded Bougalan tree leaves and other
ingredients made by specialists. The mud that is used is collected from the
deepest sections of the ponds. The mud is left to ferment in a covered pot for
about a year. During this time it turns black in color. The potted mud is
diluted with water when needed. The designs are drawn on the cloth section by
using various width spatulas made of small pieces of Bamboo and flat metal. The
main larger sections are marked off while lying flat on the ground. The smaller
more detailed work is done on a woman’s lap with the section placed over a
calabash.The mudcloth patterns and designs are all so unique and would be a
lovely piece addition to add to your collection or home.
