    I like the hat, however I have purchased the same hat many years ago, in a large size, the hat that  I received was a lot smaller.  Where I live is 115*, and every inch matters to me.

    I absolutely love this hat! I purchased it to wear in an international fashion show, since I have West African ancestry.  I plan to display it at home as well.

    Mud Cloth Bambara

    M-F050

    You can also choose an individual piece of mudcloth here.
    (Exact pieces can be chosen for $3 more each.)

    Indigo pieces may bleed. To prevent this, wash several times in cold water to remove as much loose dye as possible.

    Nothing makes a fashion statement better than mudcloth!

    These mudcloth pieces, which are made in Mali are "Lapa" size. Approx. 38" - 45" wide x 63" - 68" long. Sizes may vary as these are hand made. Traditional African mudcloth sheets are handwoven and made one at a time. No two pieces of mud cloth are exactly alike, so the colors shown are available, but the exact patterns vary from one piece to the next. They're great for clothing, home decoration, crafts and other creative pursuits. African artisans hand-dye symbols into these fabrics in order to tell stories of their villages and African proverbs. Mudcloth has a long tradition of being used by West African warriors and hunters to camouflage themselves. Nowadays, people across the globe are wearing them to stand out and celebrate their connection to the African continent. M-F050

    Best to wash by hand.

    All mudcloth is individually hand spun, hand woven, and hand painted. Each piece is different. Photos shown here are representative of colors only.
