This graphic DIY art print was inspired by mudcloth.
Mudcloth, if you’re not acquainted with this gorgeous textile, is a thick fabric which is made by sewing together narrow strips of handwoven cotton. The cotton fabric is then painted with aged and fermented mud or natural dyes.
Mudcloth originated in West Africa, specifically in the Malian region. It is often seen in home decor as a dark toned fabric ordained with a white geometric pattern consisting of bold yet simple dots and lines, or as an ivory toned fabric with black geometric dots and lines. Malian fashion designer Chris Seydou has been credited with introducing mudcloth to a global audience.

“Acid” is not typically a word synonymous with hair health – but it should be.
You’ve likely heard of the lemon juice and sunlight trick for lightening hair. When used together, they work to oxidize the pigments in your strands, subtly lightening without bleach or a trip to the salon.
The flip side is that the harsh combination of heat, UV light, and high acidity leaves strands dehydrated and crunchy, not to mention damaged.
Who doesn’t love a soaking in a warm bath with a good book and a glass of something delicious? Added bonus if you add a fragrant, fizzy bath bomb to your bath water.
Unfortunately, far too often store-bought bath bombs smell like you overdid it in the perfume aisle. Not ideal for the scent sensitive folks, or for those who want to avoid synthetic fragrances. Store-bought bath bombs can also contain toxic dyes which have been linked to UTI’s and yeast infections. And at $8 or more a pop, they’re far from economical.
