Bogolan: Shaping Culture through Cloth in Contemporary Mali

 Author: Victoria L. Rovine  Publisher: Indiana University Press  : 2001  ISBN: 978-0-253-22029-5  Language: English  Tags: bogolanClothCultureHistorymaliTextile |

In this illustrated book, Victoria Rovine explores the revival of a traditional African textile known variously as bogolanfini, bogolan or mudcloth. Since about 1990, artists of the West African nation of Mali have adapted this cloth, featuring black- or brown-and-white geometric patterns, to create a variety of wares, including intricately detailed paintings, elaborate high-fashion clothing and a wide range of other products aimed at both domestic and foreign consumers.
