From Mali the traditional Bogolan mudcloths which are hand dyed with mud, leaves and roots of plants have been transformed into unique ethnic cushion covers. Each cover is its own piece of art and have perfect imperfections which add to the romance of the African textiles. The mud cloths are made from strips of the fabric which are put together to form one large "blanket". The fabric is usually made by the men in the families and the woman are responsible for putting the strips together and the dying process. Due to the handmade nature, the textiles may have inconsistencies and imperfections.
