Mud Cloth is usually woven by men and the women dye it. Strips of cotton fabric about 5" wide are woven and stitched into cloths. The cloth is soaked in dye made from mashed, boiled, or soaked leaves. The now yellow cloth is sun-dried and painted with designs using a piece of metal or wood. The paint, is a special mud, from riverbeds is fermented for up to a year in a clay jar. There is a chemical reaction between the mud and the dyed cloth, the brown color remains after the mud is washed off.
