Also known as Bogolanfini cloth, derived from “bogo” meaning mud/earth, “lan” meaning with and “fini” meaning cloth. The white base cloth is soaked in a solution rich of tannic acid (using leaves and branches).  Once a pattern is drawn onto the fabric, the negative space is filled with iron-rich mud, which was fermented for a year. When dry, the cloth is washed to remove excess mud. The yellow areas are bleached using a mixture of boiled peanuts, water, caustic soda and millet bran, then left in the sun for a week before washed.
