Pillow Covers

Perfectly imperfect handmade African Mud Cloth Pillow Cover from Uganda.

Fits 18 by 18 inches pillow inserts.
*inserts not included*

Each pillow cover has unique imperfections due to the fact they were handmade in Uganda by local artisans. This pillow cover is made using one of the most distinctive textiles – mud cloth made by the Bambara/Bamana people of Mali, West Africa. Mud cloth is made of strips of hand-loomed cotton cloths that are hand-stitched together. They are softened and dyed in small vats of organic botanicals that include leaves, bark, and fermented river mud.

This cotton mud cloth is thick with a soft feel. The imperfections of the weave, dye, stitch, and painted design are a natural characteristic and serve to enhance the individual uniqueness and charm of each handmade tribal textile. We’re happy to create and bring to your home, these beautiful one-of-a-kind pillows!
