Mali Mud Cloth Blanket

Mink and Bone
Black and white

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.

Love this blanket!!

Amazing blanket! So soft and luxurious. I can’t want to snuggle during the wintertime when its cold because its so warm and cozy. Make sure you purchase this blanket, we love ours and our whole family fits under it since its nice and big!


never recieved it

Hi Rob - Since you are in Canada delivery takes a bit longer. I just checked your tracking and it looks like your package cleared customs yesterday. Your blankets should be received this week! Please let me know if you need anything. Thanks, Angela

Fabulous Blanket!

I was pleasantly surprised at how fast this blanket arrived to our front door step. I ended up purchasing the black and white version since it fits into any decor and we are not dissappointed! It's soft with short fur like material. It is the perfect weight for a summer blanket. We have already taken it with us outdoors, but it is also perfect for inside the house. We love how versatile this blanket is. Our dog and cat may love it more than we do. I highly recommend this blanket. You will reach out for it time and time again. Plus it feels good knowing that your purchase is helping to make a difference. Thank you, Thula Tula! You have a customer for life!

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave such a kind review. We are so happy you love your Thula Tula blanket!
