The Atala throw is made of African Mudcloth. Now what IS mudcloth you may find yourself asking? Well it's one of the design world's trendiest textile choices that has actually been around forever. Mudcloth, or bogolanfini, is an ancient Malian textile (dating back to the 12th century). Traditionally, it involves coarse, hand-spun cotton strips going through a long series of dyeing processes—first in a bath with leaves and branches, then numerous dye cycles in fermented mud (hence the name)—to achieve minimalist, symbolic designs.
The durability of Mudcloth makes it an excellent choice of textile for upholstery, pillows, even shower curtains! The Atala Mudcloth throw, can be used as a tablecloth, a picnic blanket, an accent throw, whatever you can think of really. The Atala throw is ream colored with a henna colored dot pattern and has unfinished/raw edges that will get softer with age.
