Use of African Mudcloth in Designer Pillows

Swahili Modern Blog and News

We were recently delighted to see a piece of our Malian mudcloth transformed into gorgeous pillows by Ginny McDonald, who curates and designs textiles to sell to stores and individual designers.

Ginny immediately recognized the unique quality of this one-of-a-kind mudcloth, which features a mustard dye and hand-painted dots. As a designer in Southern California, Ginny noted that the market is "flooded with Mali cloth, especially all the indigos and graphic designs."
