A collaboration between Lizzie Fortunato and St. Frank, this statement necklace incorporates our mud cloth fabric by the yard. This fabric is inspired by mud cloth, or bògòlanfini in Bambara, a traditional West African textile. As the name suggests, it is created with fermented mud to produce pigment for dye. The geometric patterns represent animals or other objects from the natural world. Mud cloth was traditionally worn by hunters, offering camouflage, ritual protection, and status. More recently, mud cloth has become a symbol of Malian cultural identity and has been exported as an iconic international textile used in fashion, home design, and fine art. The necklace is beautifully finished with gold plated brass and turquoise beads.
