Cushion made from African mud cloth/Earthy colours

Striking cushion made from genuine African mud cloth from Malia. Mali's distinctive mud cloths are created using the ancient strip-weaving method found throughout West Africa. The weaver weaves plain white cotton threads into narrow strips up to 60 metres long. Then a sewer cuts and stitches these strips together to make a whole cloth. Only then is the cloth coloured using a variety of techniques. Mud cloth from Mali is painted with designs using natural mordants and dyes, including river mud.

The cushion measures 15" square.

I have a pair of them for sale.

Plain black linen on the reverse, zip opening and the price includes a plump feather inner.

All interior seams are overlocked to prevent fraying.
