Bogolan Mudcloth Pillow - Burkina Faso

This handmade 18" square pillow features hand-woven, naturally-dyed and fair trade Bogolan mudcloth textile from a cooperative in Burkina Faso. It is sewn by a resettled refugee paid above a living wage in San Diego, California. Each pillow incorporates textiles on one side and sustainably harvested cork fabric (lined with cotton) on the other, and is lined with 100% organic cotton. Your purchase reflects the artisanship of diverse people, places and cultures, and creates fair wages for vulnerable people and makers around the world.

As each pillow is made by hand and is entirely one-of-a-kind, please expect small variations in size/styling from the one pictured. Your pillow will be made from the textile and cork fabrics pictured, but will utilize different pieces. This is the beauty of handmade, the creative expression of individuals, and supporting unique refugee artisans from around the world.

Pairs well with any of our fair trade pillows!

Beam Highlighter

A light and silky, mineral based highlighting cosmetic that can be applied any place you want to glow. The shimmer of Beam is magnified with the addition of Madrone spirit medicine, a tree native to the Pacific Northwest that helps us stay connected to ourselves despite whatever influential winds might be blowing. Beam is the magic love child of plant medicine and a desire to shake what your mama gave you.
