Mud Cloth or bogolanfini, is an ancient Malian (West African) textile dating back to the 12th century. Traditionally, it involves coarse, hand-spun cotton strips going through a long series of dyeing processes - first in a bath with leaves and branches, then numerous dye cycles in fermented mud (hence the name) - to achieve minimalist, symbolic designs.
