Birifini Throw Blanket

The Birifini Throw pays homage to mud cloth (or bogolanfini), a handmade Malian cotton fabric dating back to the 12th century made from woven cloth strips that are sewn together and then painstakingly dyed with fermented mud. Each piece of mud cloth tells a story through the symbols it displays. Birifini is the Bambaran (spoken in Mali) word for 'blanket'. If you're in love with mud cloth as much as we are, we hope you'll enjoy our celebration of this simple yet versatile design.

Seek and Swoon creates knit throw blankets that evoke feelings of home and comfort. Every blanket is completely made from recycled yarn, all of which can be found in the US. Seek and Swoon is partnered with a family-owned knitting mill. Their process for obtaining recycled yarn eliminates the need for new cotton farming, therefore reducing land use, and eliminating textile scraps and plastic ending up in landfills.
