Testimonial: "The mudcloth you selected for my order was perfect for the pillows that I am making. I really appreciated the fact that you sent identical designs in the colors I selected. I really liked the indigo/natural striped mudcloth. It was very different from what I usually get." - Melvina from Columbus, OH
MSRP: $55.90



Indigo fabric is one of the most popular fabrics from Africa. Symbolic of wealth and prosperity, this fabric is admired by almost every ethnic group on the continent.

Even the Tuareg have been called the "purple nomads" because of their extensive use of this cloth. The cotton fabric is first hand-woven on looms and then dyed using leaves from the indigo plant that have been beaten into a pulp, rolled into balls, and then left to dry in the sun for two to three days. After this, they are mixed in an ash and water solution that acts as a fixative for the indigo dye. The fabric is dyed using the tie-dye or plain-print method, and the excess dye is removed by hammering the fabric with rubber mallets.

Indigo dye often rubs off onto the skin, so do not be surprised if this happens when you handle the fabric.

**Each piece is one of a kind and the patterns vary from piece to piece. Exact designs cannot be specified. approx. 60" x 42". Made in Mali. M-F160

Buy 12 for only $23.29 each.

Indigo cloth pieces are hand made and sometimes arrive shorter or longer than average. We can exchange this piece for you for one that measures 6 feet if that works for you.

I HAVE USED THIS MUD CLOTH AND THE COLORS ARE WONDERFUL,BUT THE DYE ON THE FABRICS HAS RUN AND YOU NEED TO DRY CLEAN OR COLD WATER WASH.

Dry cleaning is normally not good for hand made mudcloth from Africa. Hand washing in cold water is normally the best method. You can see more washing and care instructions for mudcloth through the following link. http://africaimports.com/african_mudcloth.asp
