Mud-dyed cloth called bògòlanfini is a traditional textile of the Bamana people of Mali in West Africa. Nakunte Diarra, a contemporary bògòlanfini master, dyed the cloth inspiring this Book Rug design using a complicated process in which the mud dye is applied in the spaces around and between the pattern lines. Her cloths are marked by sharp contrasting patterns, crisp lines, and a variety of designs, all characteristics of fine bògòlanfini.
