Authentic Mudcloth fabric from Mali, Africa. Handmade by artisans means no two fabrics are ever the same. Each batch of cushions is made from this unique fabric.
Beautifully finished with an Ashepa touch, a silk backing and white lining to give a subtle contrast. Soft and luxurious at the same time. Each is filled with a plump feather insert.
Our authentic Bogolan mudcloth cushions are handmade using traditional techniques in Mali. Narrow strips of handwoven cotton are stitched together into a whole cloth, then painted with geometric patterns and symbols using a variety of natural dyes, including river mud that has been aged for up to one year. Each cloth is a unique creation and it is perfectly imperfect. Most designs tell a story.
Other available designs: Black with a speckled white design and white.

Each cushion will vary slightly for the picture - these are handmade items and that is what makes. Marks may vary, as will stitching, and each mark is handmade.
