HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR COVER FOR THE BEST FIT:
For the best fit, pillow covers should be smaller than the insert. If you choose to order your cover the same size as your insert it will be loose
All of my pillows are photographed using feather pillow inserts. If you use stiff synthetic fill inserts, the fit and look will be different. If you do not want to use feather inserts I recommend a high quality feather alternative, or kapok. Please check my insert listings for options
*** If you have special requests contact me BEFORE placing your order

HOW MUD CLOTH IS MADE:
Mud Cloth (or Bògòlanfini) is a 100% handmade textile which is produced by the Bambara/Bamana people of Mali in West Africa
The cotton is hand-harvested and spun. The cotton is very rustic and is not chemically treated. You may even find bits of the cotton husk which have not been removed!
Mud cloth is made by hand-weaving long strips of cotton using a primitive weaving tool. These long strips are then stitched together to create a large cloth
The cloth is then dyed by submerging it in a vat of fermented organic material such as tea leaves, leaves from trees, tree bark, and fermented iron-rich mud
The cloth is removed from the vat and left to dry in the sun. To achieve darker colors, the cloths must be submerged in the dye vat and dried several times, this process can take many weeks
The motifs are often hand-painted using a thick paste of mud, either by hand or using a stencil. Mud Cloth can be seen with traditional motifs and also very modern designs which have come about due to demand from abroad

WHAT TO EXPECT:
Due to the fact that this is a handmade fabric, there will be variations in color and texture
Mud cloth is NOT produced in a factory and it is not bleached so the colors are not extreme white/black
The charm of these fabrics is that there are imperfections. The designs are hand-drawn on the fabric rather than printed so expect there to be an organic and irregular design repeat
A set of mud cloth pillows will never be identical due to the hand-printed patterns but I do my best to cut them as similarly as possible

CARING FOR YOUR MUDCLOTH:
Important to note is that mud Cloth is NOT color fast. If it is made wet, the color will bleed and lighten unpredictably
If it is washed, it will lighten a lot and it will shrink
It is recommended that you dry clean or carefully spot clean only as needed

MATERIALS IN THIS PILLOW:
Mud cloth is made from 100% cotton
The secondary material on the pillow is white cotton
The pillow is fitted with a hidden zipper

Frequently Asked Questions

** Comprehensive Return Policy **

As your pillow is made to order, I do not accept returns or exchanges. This covers the below scenarios:

Define "Imperfections" (Mudcloth & Indigo Textiles)

Mudcloth and Indigo textiles are made almost entirely by hand. Imperfections that should be expected include:

-Discolorations
-Pattern variations / asymmetric pattern and seam placement
-Design and paint smudges
-Textile nubs and pulls at seams where panels are sewn together

It is widely accepted that these unique attributes are not defects.

We adhere to extremely high standards in our production process, but it is important to stress that these textiles are inherently imperfect (and undeniably beautiful!)

Sizing details

When available, all of our drop down menu options list pillow cover sizes. We suggest using a pillow insert 1-2 inches larger than pillow cover for a stuffed look. (ie 20x20 insert for a 19x19 cover)

There may be small variations in the finished size, as our pillows covers are handmade.

Please read individual item details before purchase.

When will this ship?

Your pillow covers are lovingly made to order. We are as excited to make them as you are to receive them! We ask that if your order is still inside the shipping window detailed in item descriptions and order confirmations, please refrain from sending convos requesting shipping estimates. Blocking time to investigate and respond to these convos slows production.

International Orders

We gladly ship internationally. Customers are responsible for any applicable customs / import taxes.
