The inspiration for the Mudcloth Bag came from traditional African mudcloth, a beautiful handmade cotton fabric that has been a part of Malian culture since the 12th century. And while my hook-and-yarn version isn’t exactly comparable to the fascinating way that genuine mudcloth is made (using fermented mud and plant dyes), I am still in love with this bag!
