Dark Indigo Stripe Mud Cloth Stocking
One of a Kind Mud Cloth Stockings
Mud Cloth is a cotton fabric with an abundance of cultural significance throughout Africa. In its place of origin, Mali, West Africa, men traditionally wove strips of fabric together to create a larger canvas and women dyed it using an intricate process. The vibrant and beautiful designs are created by painting with fermented mud or sludge. The cloth is first dyed using tea leaves and branches, then dried in the sun. Patterns, which each have cultural, historic and geographic significance, are painted onto the cloth with mud and then washed.
