Malaika Mud Cloth Bag

$410.00

Our Malaika Mud cloth Bag is an African-themed gear designed to lend an Afro-vibe to any outfit. It is a versatile bag that is designed for everyday utility. Adele Dejak brings authentic mud cloths straight from Malian designer Boubacar to Kenya. The tradition of making beautifully patterned out mud cloths, or bogolanfini, is strongly linked to the Bamana people of Mali. Bògòlanfini is a term in the Bambara language made up of three words. “Bogo” refers to “mud,” “Lan” means “with,” and “Fini” means “cloth.” Hence, the term Bògòlanfini is Bambara for ‘mud cloth.’ We hope you enjoy your Malaika bag and Boubacar’s modern designs.
