Bglanfini, or "mudcloth, " is a handmade malian cotton fabric traditionally dyed with iron-rich mud. It has an important place in traditional malian culture and has, more recently, become a symbol of malian cultural identity. In traditional bglanfini production, the cloth is soaked in a bath of dye from the leaves of the n'gallama tree (anogeissus leiocarpa).

Once it has taken on a yellow hue, the cloth is sun-dried and then painted with designs using a piece of metal or wood. The paint, carefully and repeatedly applied to outline the intricate motifs, is made of a special mud, collected from riverbeds and fermented for up to a year.
