Celebrating the artistry of the indigenous people of Mali, Dogon reflects the ancient craft and motifs of bògòlanfini, or ‘bogolan’. Literally translated as ‘mud cloth’, bogolan is a traditional handspun cotton, painted with symbols using natural dyes, including aged river mud. When washed, they reveal their beautiful organic designs, reflecting Malian music and ritual. Bògòlanfini patterns are rich in cultural significance, often featuring scenes from myths and folklore, proverbs and dancing figures with upraised hands. Bring a feeling of festivity into your space with this versatile fabric. Our take on bogolan is printed on fine linen in five colours, with original drawings by artist Melinda Marquardt.
