Dogon Indigo Hand-dyed cloth #20

Out of Stock

The Dogon people of Mali are known for their craftsmanship and for their incredible culture and mythology. Hand-dyed indigo is the fabric of choice for clothing. Local cotton is hand-spun, hand-woven in long strips that are then stitched together before the cloth is tied with small stitches and dyed in indigo.

The cloth is very soft. Indigo has a recognizable scent and will bleed and rub off (but that is how you know it is real!). The cloth can be washed by hand and line dried. You can try to set the dye using vinegar.

This piece is approximately 5'5" x 4'10" and would be a beautiful addition to any textile-lover's collection.
