You might be wondering: Why are we so mad for mudcloth? And what exactly is mudcloth anyway?

Mudcloth textiles give an earthy, textural appeal to any room. Woven using a traditional technique indigenous to Mali, mudcloth fabric is created by sewing together narrow strips of fabric into larger swatches that can be used for clothing, blankets, tapestries, pillows, and other textiles. In its most traditional form, the fabric is dyed using mud that creates black pigment for unique patterns on the mudcloth’s surface. Call us crazy at Consort, but we like it both ways: as a textural solid and as a splash of pattern in a room. 

There’s a reason why mudcloth is a front-and-center fabric we’ve featured from designer Erin Fetherston’s home décor collaboration with Fragments Identity. Rich visual textures and hand-dyed designs make mudcloth accessories ideal decorative touches for a collected, layered space that has a bit of a worldly edge.
