Today many mass produced fabrics feature mud cloth inspired prints.

However, traditionally, African Mud cloth is a handmade woven cotton fabric dyed with fermented mud and painted with with dyes made from roots and other natural pigments. Many handmade African textiles express the richness in culture and unique traditions from the region in which they were made.

Mud cloth is called Bogolanfini in Mali and the mud dyeing process is a centuries old tradition.

Here is a video from Travel West Africa on Youtube which shows the overall mud cloth making concept.
