Weaving Bogolan or Mudcloth is a cottage industry in Mali.
The fabric is woven in small strips. Then the strips are whip-stitched together to form sheets.
This fabric is not created by the yard the way machine woven fabric is. This hand stitching adds to the human flavor of the product.
Sometimes it shows up in unexpected yet pleasant places. It is the final touch of the fabric artist.
Then Eada Fashions makes the bowls.
