This item is a 153 cm (60 inch) by 127 cm (50 inch) piece of hand dyed cotton Dogon indigo fabric from Dogon Country in Mali. It looks lovely as a wall hanging, table cloth, or a throw for your sofa.

Each purchase supports Dogon tailors and seamstresses.
You can add a custom message to the recipient that will be sent with the fabric.
