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
Finally, the residual yellow areas are
bleached with a mixture of millet and peanuts as well as an active ingredient:
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

or water to which 1/3 of white vinegar has been added. This action limits the
bleeding of colors and fixes them.
