Yes, this fabric is hand loomed shibori mud cloth from Mali, Africa. The artisan who made this cloth had a love of color! Perfect for a summer throw, pillow covers, or pieced into a jacket.
This is a vintage textile and its in excellent condition. Interestingly, when some of the strips needed to be stitched back together, the seamstress used a contrasting light pink thread to do the mending. Likely it was the only thread available.
This mud cloth is made of nice sturdy cotton and is fully washable. I have laundered this shibori fabric with hot water so the color is well set.
