The bogolan invites to the discovery of new lands through the beauty of the motifs and symbols realized by freehand.

Bogolan is a traditional technique of vegetal painting and dyeing practiced in West Africa. This typically manual art, using natural products, comes from the encounter of clay, forest (bark, leaves) and cotton. It is a means of expression for craftsmen.

The Bogolan fabric carries within it the joy, conviviality and love that surround its realization. The colors and patterns loaded with messages offer a narrative of real and mythical events. It is a journey to discover the richness of the Dogon country at the heart of traditional rites and myths.

We associate this model with cork, excellent substitute for certain petroleum derivatives as well as animal leather. Soft and waterproof, the cork degrades naturally, without creating toxic residues.
