About the fabric of our scarves.
Very deep blue fabric, hand-dyed for a very long time in Senegal and elsewhere in Africa and India. The indigo color is obtained from a tree called "the indigo tree". The leaves of the indigo tree are said to have medicinal properties as well.
Bogolan fabric (mud cloth):
Bogolan is a very old traditional technique of vegetable dyeing valued and practiced in Mali and Burkina Faso.
The bogolan manufacturing process is artisanal. The textile used is woven cotton. Cotton is dyed by soaking in a decoction of tree leaves (n’galman and n’tjankara) containing a high concentration of tannin.
The patterns are then made freehand on the fabric from the mud. When the mud has dried, the cotton piece is rinsed with water to remove excess mud. Then, the process of soaking with the mud is repeated several times on the areas where it is desired to strengthen the black color.
Finally, the residual yellow areas are bleached with a mixture of millet and peanuts as well as an active ingredient: soda.
Each of these scarves has a story and a way of doing things that have touched our hearts. Their "indigo" and "bogolan" fabrics are marvels of Senegal, real treasures that we will love to wear in many ways.

Washing advice: Take some precautions with this vegetable dye. It takes the first wash before wearing or using an indigo fabric. Rinse your clothing or fabric in a bath of strongly salted water or water to which 1/3 of white vinegar has been added. This action limits the bleeding of colors and fixes them.
