    • The traditionally dyed cotton fabrics of the people of Mali are the inspiration behind this intricate mud cloth throw. Since its early roots in this rich culture, it is the men’s duty to weave the fabric, after which it is handed over to the women. They dye the fabric using mud that has been fermented for up to a year. The fabric is then dried in the sun, and symbolic patterns are painted on by hand. Traditionally worn by hunters, the patterns are rich in cultural significance, referring to historical events, mythological concepts, or proverbs. The rock art in the Sahara Desert suggests that northern Mali has been inhabited since 10,000 BC when the Sahara was fertile and rich in wildlife. By 300 BC, large organized settlements had developed, most notably near Djenné, one of West Africa’s oldest cities. Learn More

    Loving my blanket and throw

    I really love this blanket! Everyone that has seen it has asked for the link to order one for themselves. I also have the throw and when I wrap myself in the throw, it feels so comfortable! I’m thinking about ordering another set, plus I’m doing something good for the people.
