The Bogolan or Bogolanfini is a textile in cotton from Mali.
It is traditionally hand-made and dyed with fermented mud.
In the Malian culture, the Bogolan was worn by hunters who would use it for camouflage or ritual protection. But the cloth is also being used for girls that had their first circumcision or menstruation.
In the Malian culture, it is still said that the bogolan has the power of absorbing dangerous mystical forces, which are released during childbirth.
