Bogolan-art

Bogolan, or mud cloth, is an ornament made from traditional fabrics. These are first painted with fermented mud and then sun dried and decorated with natural colours. This traditional production process make these blankets completely ecological and gives it a powerful finish inspired by both arid dunes and snowy peaks.

Boubacar, the original designer of the Ice & Snow design, was so inspired when he saw snow for the first time that he decided he wanted to wear the snow and spread the beauty of this unusual element throughout the African region. Of course, you can’t wear snow, so instead he designed this beautiful piece of cloth.

Use: Bogolan is not colour-fast so make sure to wash it separate to your other laundry. It is recommended that, before use, the product be soaked for 1 hour in a solution with a ratio of 1 liter of vinegar to 5 litres of warm water. Rinse thoroughly before you wash the fabric at your washing machine’s wool setting at 40°C. Dry in open air.
