Fika mud cloth pillow
Handcrafted from authentic West African mud cloth, our pillow cover reflects the centuries-old art of mud dyeing cotton and embellishing it with distinctive tribal patterns. In a time-intensive process, local artisans bathe the cotton in natural dyes made from tree leaves and dry it in the sun, then hand paint traditional geometric motifs using fermented river mud. Rich in meaning, the geometric markings often tell a story about the maker or local history. Woven and dyed by hand, each pillow cover is uniquely one of a kind.
Please note that many of our handmade items are one of a kind, perfectly imperfect, vintage and have indigenous decorative repair work which we believe adds to the intrinsic value and beauty of the items. No two items are exactly the same.
