Mudcloth - also called 'bogolan' - is one of Africa's most unusual and unique textiles. Narrow strips of handwoven cotton are stitched together into a whole cloth, then painted with patterns and symbols using a variety of natural dyes, including river mud that has been aged up to one year. As these cloths are handwoven, the thickness and weight are variable, but generally they are similar to a light blanket.

These cushions are mudcloth-style, utilizing the same patterns and symbols that are prevalent in authentic mudcloth fabrics. The covers are actually 100% cotton and should be washed in cold water and air-dried to preserve the life of the fabric.

Zipper opening for easy insertion. Inner filler provided.

Dimensions: 17" square. 44 cm square. 

#11 and #12 are rectangular (11" x 20"; 28 x 50 cm)
