African mud cloth, also called African strip cloth, is hand loomed in every color imaginable. Seen above is a yarn dyed mud cloth. This means pre-colored yarns are woven to create the patterns. But today I'm posting some photos of new mud cloth that is made in natural oyster white, then dyed or printed using resist techniques.
Mud cloth is decorated with traditional geometric linear patterns. After a wax resist is applied to create the graphic design, the mud cloth is then over dyed black or earth tone colors.
This chocolate brown African mud cloth is a less common color, but nonetheless beautiful.
Mud cloth in shades of peanut, khaki, rust, and terra cotta are just a few of the colors you can find in my shop.
Classic black African mud cloth with natural or white patterns is always a favorite.
Another type of resist dying is tie dye. The mud cloth above in indigo blue has a very different appeal than the gray mud cloth pictured below due to the color and difference in the age of the mud cloth.
no matter what your design taste, there's a good chance you can find an African mud cloth to fit your next project. Please be sure to visit my on line store or Etsy shop for a large selection of resist dyed African mud cloth.
