The Wosoko print was inspired by Bògòlanfini, meaning "mud cloth" in the Bambara language, handmade Malian cotton fabricated traditionally dyed with fermented mud.
Bògòlanfini holds an important place in traditional Malian and has various cultural meanings, depicting mythological concepts, proverbs, and historic events, it is worn by hunters as camouflage, protection, and as a badge of status. Women are also wrapped in the fabric after they enter adulthood and right after giving birth. Wosoko means "sickle" (farming tool) in Bambara since the pattern resembles the back of a Sickle's blade.
Style and Comfort is a perfect match for this dress and it's wonderful for everyday play. Super soft 100% organic cotton. Snap-on the back for easy dressing.
