African Mudcloth Pillow - perfect addition to your home décor
This pillow was made from a traditional mudcloth textile sheet from Mali West Africa.
These textiles were handwoven, and none are completely alike. The villagers weave these cloths on twig frames into narrow strips of fabric, which are then sewn together to form a larger sheet. The designs are created by using cured mud to form the fabric’s pattern and then by immersing it in natural dye. These designs tell of their traditions and village life. Irregularities and some discolorations are common in these completely handmade fabrics. Please look at the pictures for reference.
The pillow measures 20” x 20”.
FOR A PERFECT FIT, we highly recommend choosing the “Cover with Insert” option to order the luxury 100% cotton down-proof ticking pillow insert along with the pillow cover. Our pillow covers are sewn to fit these excellent hypoallergenic feather/down inserts.

- Back of cover is made with vintage mangle cloth, a pure linen fabric from Germany.
- Hidden zipper closure allows removal of the insert to care for the cover.
- All fabrics are washed before sewing. For laundering my fabrics, I use Costco soap and Dr. Brunner soap.
