This soft, beautifully woven, cozy, lightweight, hypoallergenic, machine-washable, sustainably, and ethically crafted African print throw is inspired by the traditional dyed and elaborate cotton fabrics of the people of Mali. It has a minimalist beauty that melts together the colors of fall and the daydreams of winter. It is the perfect size to curl up with on the sofa or toss in the car, bursting with tradition and culture that will add that finishing touch to any room design.
As a California customer raves, "This throw is cozy, beautiful, and authentic. Accept no knockoffs. This is the best!"
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

The throw is beautiful. It serves it purpose by keeping me warm when I'm chilly.
I love the design of the throw but I was thinking is was thick and warm like the mud cloth blanket except smaller. Very thin. Totally disappointed.
