in traditional production. the men weave the cloth and the women dye it. On narrow looms, strips of cotton about 6 inches wide are woven and handstitched into clothes about 3ft x 5ft.
the cloth is soaked in a dye bath of mashed and boiled n'gallama tree leaves. the cloth is then sun dried and painted with traditional tribal designs using a piece of metal or wood. the paint is a special mud, collected from the bottom of riverbeds and fermented up to a year in a clay jar.
due to the chemical reaction of the mud and dyed cloth, the color and symbols remain after the cloth is washed off.
