I’ve always been drawn to textiles that have a handcrafted and authentic feel and these mud cloth designs are just up my street. They have an ethnic feel and at the same time embody that modern tribal aesthetic which is so on trend at the moment. These textiles are handmade in Mali and traditionally created by dying cotton with fermented mud. It’s quite a process! (You can read more about mud cloth history over on Design Sponge.)
I love how this traditional cloth is being appreciated in our modern world. One reason being because their graphic patterns and lines fit in well with so many other looks whether it’s a Scandi style home or a bohemian hipster cafe.
These graphic tribal cushions also work beautifully with Moroccan Beni Ourain rugs.
To get your hands on some mud cloth cushions locally, hop over to So Fine which is a brand new online store.
