Mbuti Black CB on Linen
The Mbuti Pygmy tribe live in the Ituri forest in North East Congo. Bark cloth is traditionally worn and made by women to wrap their new born babies in. Using the inner bark of at least six tree species, it is pounded flat with an elephant tusk or wooden mallet, yielding a fibrous canvas, then softened with water or breast milk and the patterns are drawn on with a finger or twig with black colour from the gardenia plant. These patterns are abstract expressions of the moods and features of the forest.
It is important to note that our products are mostly hand printed and that irregularities may occur. Slight colour variations in base fabric as well as print colour may occur and that a 5% colour variation is acceptable and within industry standard.
Colours seen on screen are not always accurate as all screens are not colour calibrated. If you are uncertain of a colour, rather contact us and discuss the option of having a strike printed before proceeding with a bulk order. Contact email@example.com for further information.
