Mud cloth, also known as Bògòlanfini is handwoven on a small looms then sewn together to make a larger piece of textile. The larger piece is then printed using hand carved wood blocks and fermeted vegetable dyes mixed with fermented mud hence the name “mudcloth”. The printed pattern is the fingerprint of the artisan rendering each one an extraordinary piece of art and have become the symbol of cultural identity.
We carefully select and buy H|F mudcloths directly from the Dogon tribes of Mali through a travelling tribal Mamma. Each textile is cleaned, reinforced, and finally finished with a water resistant natural color stay oil solution to ensure the best longevity of the finished piece. Fading and softness will occur with age and the items “lived in feel” only brings more life to the indigenous pattern.
All H|F pillows come complete with our proprietary blend of duck feather & goose down pillow inserts. We know that size is oh so important. That's why every piece has been made with intention cut to size by hand and overstuffed with goodness for the perfect fit. We believe that your pillows should support body weight, as well as deliver the most delicious sink when you land on them. High profile vegan options available upon request.
