Serape- North Star Mudcloth textile with Handstitched Accents

A versatile Serape wrap crafted exclusively for Dixon Rand. This one-of-a-kind mudcloth textile was hand selected by our artisan partner and then washed and softened to perfection. We see a North Star or Compass design in this pattern...an extremely unique find. Small hits of hand stitching make this a collectible treasure. 

Traditionally made by men, they weave together thin strips of plain fabric, usually a yellowish beige natural color, into squares that were then stitched together. After the construction of the cloth, the fabric was then dyed in baths of leaves and branches. As the mud dries, it changes colors, from dark brown or black to a gray color. The excess mud is washed off the fabric and the process is repeated many times. With each repetition, the affected area becomes darker. After sun drying for a week, the fabric is washed off and leaves the characteristic white pattern on a dark background.   

This style has a large opening that allows this style to be worn as a Poncho or turned sideways as an off the shoulder wrap. The length hits at hip. A unisex style that can double as a throw or at home wrap.
