Meet the Artisan
Boubacar Doumbia is a legend in Mali - he is one of the worlds’ leading experts in the art of mudcloth. To reinvigorate this art form, his group went from village to village researching their traditions and learning the craft, and have been a major force in saving mudcloth from extinction.
Doumbia is also the founder of Atelier Ndomo–a social enterprise created to train uneducated youth in the techniques of creating mud cloth while also providing training in financial responsibility and business management. Boubacar’s work is featured in galleries and showrooms across the United States and Europe. Obakki has worked with Doumbia on the creation of our custom collection of original mud cloth designs.
