Recent Creative Pursuits: Mud cloth experiment
|Malian woman drawing pattern on bogolanfini|
What's been inspiring me lately is mud cloth. Created by the Bambaran people of the Republic of Mali, west Africa, it is known as bogolanfini (bogo=mud, lan=with, fini=cloth). Mud cloth is culturally significant, traditionally created by women, and used in ceremonies as well as for modern day clothing and home accessories.
