For those of you who aren’t familiar with African mud cloth; here is the low down. Mud cloth is traditionally called Bogolanfini which is one of the most popular African textile traditions. It is handmade Malian cotton fabric dyed using a process of fermented mud that dates back to the 12th century. One of the many things that make mud cloth so special and unique is that every pattern holds meaning and the language of the cloth is passed down from mother to daughter.
The designer to thank for bringing this trend of out Africa to Western society is, Chris Seydou. As you all have noticed, this fabric can be found from anything to home décor to handbags. This is true for both our Facile and Meg clutches; handbags that can easily translate from day to evening. We chose some bold triangular patterns, cobalt tie die and a delicate take on herringbone to feature this season.
Be sure to make a statement with the addition of pattern this fall; we have a feeling this trend will be around for a while for us all to embrace.
