Black and White Mali African Print Bow Tie
Inspired by Mali mud cloth, this lightweight cotton bow tie is perfect for anyone who loves tribal print.
The origin of mud cloth can be traced back to the 12th century when it was first created in Mali, a north African country in the Sahara Desert region. The name “Mud cloth” comes from the Mali ethnic language Bambara, and it is called “Bogolanfini”, which means earth or mud (bogo) with (lan) fini (cloth). Mud cloth is dyed with fermented mud. The mud is collected from riverbeds and fermented for over a year in a clay jar. The designs on the mud cloth are used to represent social status, proverbs, or historical events.
