  • Description

    Artisans make this handcrafted star ornament from bogolan cloth. Bogolan or “mud cloth” is traditional cloth from northern Burkina Faso and Mali. Artisans dip, paint and dye the fabric in a sequence of steps. A thin mixture of aged mud is placed over the natural dyes. The aged mud contains minerals that help the dyes attach permanently to the fabric. After the drying process, artisans remove the mud and reveal the beautiful design. Decorative only. Keep out of reach of children.
