These pillows are made from African mali mud cloth: a traditionally handspun, handwoven, handstitched, and hand-dyed fabric sourced from Mali, Africa. This unique, textured fabric is woven in 5-inch strips, then the strips are sewn together. Details: 100% cotton fabric. Care: Spot clean only. Because of the handmade nature of this fabric, expect slight imperfections: pulls, slight color variations, loose threads, design smudges, and varying degrees of weave thickness. It is widely accepted that these unique attributes inherent in this fabric are not defects. This adds to the beauty and individuality of each pillow, as no two are alike.
