The Kedi Bag - Black & White Bogolan

$145.00

We’ve combined the classical beauty and tradition found in the handcrafted Bogolan cloths of the Malian people with natural vegetable tanned leather to create unique drum/bucket bags we’ve named Kedi.

One of the best known traditional African cloths, Bògòlanfini (bogolan), or “mud cloth", is a handmade Malian cotton fabric dyed using a process of fermented mud that dates back to the 12th century. It has an important place in traditional Malian culture and has, more recently, become a symbol of Malian cultural identity.

Although made and used by many Malian ethnic groups, the designs made by the Bambana people are the ones which have the most international recognition.

In the Bambara language, spoken
