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.
