African mud cloth is a traditional Malian fabric that is dyed with fermented mud and plant dyes. Artisans begin by soaking cotton cloth in a dye bath of tree leaves.
Historically, the cloth is sun-dried then painted repeatedly with fermented mud, which chemically reacts with the tree leaves and leaves the cloth a rich brown even after the mud is washed off. Unpainted parts of the mud cloth are washed or bleached off to reveal intricate designs.
