Ikat & Indigo Striped Pillow
Behind the Design: Mudcloth, or bògòlanfini in Mali’s Bambara language, is a traditional Malian and West African textile made out of fermented mud. The process begins with narrow strips of cloth which are dyed in baths of leaves or bark and left in the sun to dry. Once they’re dry, the cloths are painted with the fermented mud and sewn together to create intricate patterns and symbols, all with different stories, myths, and meanings behind them. Combining a hand-loomed coral ikat fabric sourced in Burkina Faso and made from organic, Fairtrade certified cotton, our newest line of upholstered ottomans and hand-stitched pillows blends West African traditions and creates opportunities for new female artisans in Ghana.

The artisan sector is the second largest employer in the developing world. Yet the majority of artisans are women who lack access to export markets, business skills, and the financial tools needed to run successful, global enterprises.
We are dedicated to changing that by investing 100% of our profits into education programs for the women who handcraft our products and youth in their communities. Since 2007, we've provided over 1,100 artisans and 250 young people in Rwanda & Ghana with employment opportunities, entrepreneurship training, and consistent access to the global export market.
