Bogolon is a handmade fabric which can be found on everything, from choosing home décor to furniture. This is one of the best-known African fabric cloths worldwide.
The bogolon means something made by using mud. Bamako is a village in Mali which makes the bogolon cloth.
Biraago, home of quality and authentic designs, uses bogolon in making of its numerous products.
Locally produced cotton is spun into yarn by women. Then woven on a loom before washing and drying. Leaves and branches of distinct trees are used in dying the cloth.
Mud collected from ponds are left to ferment and used to paint the cloth with outline designs and made with pieces of bamboo.
Bleach made from ground paste, water and millet bran turns the yellow pattern to brown to give the cloth the final look.
