Boho Bed Spread

While mud cloth tends to be on the stiffer end of textiles, with some wear it becomes softer and more comfortable to the touch. Because of that, it’s never a bad idea to look for secondhand mud cloth, which comes already aged. Bigger pieces of mud cloth, such as this one available on Chairish, work nicely as a bedspread or throw.

Table Runner

Dress up your table with this beautiful runner. Artisans use dye made of leaves to tint the cotton, which is then sun-dried and hand-painted using fermented river mud. The fibers are then hand-loomed to form the runner. Because of this intricate process, you can guarantee that no two are alike.

If you aren’t ready to commit to an upholstery project, the next best thing is using a mud cloth to dress up your furniture pieces. Drape a cloth, like this pastel hand-dyed, raw-edge piece, over a sofa for an elevated look.
