Description & Product Details
This soft yet structured jacket is a one-of-a-kind. The garment is a 100% cotton 1950s workers jacket, dyed by Karim Hadjab according to the Malian Bogolan method. In Bambara, Bogolan means “made from mud”. It is a dyeing and printing technique that is entirely organic using plant leaves and iron rich mud from the bottom of the Niger river. It produces a rich black colour that infuses the garment from the inside out. The process takes several days, as the infusion in plant leaves, the application of mud and baking in the sun has to be repeated several times. The result is a unique piece of clothing, a piece of art that lasts a lifetime!
