Bark Cloth

£21.00

Bark cloth is a non woven fabric made from the bark of the MUTUBA   Tree (FICUS NATALENSINS)   and is produced by the Buganda tribe in Uganda. The cloth is widely used in Uganda’s art and craft industry

It was widely used in dress making and was widely worn by the Kings and queens of Uganda prior to the arrival of cotton which I think was introduced by Arabs or Indians.
