Bògò celebrates the textile craftsmanship of Burkina Faso with a fabric composed of the earth, rivers and sun of Mali. Bogolan in Bambara literally means made from mud; the process involves a long preparation of the dye, created using clay, leaves and water. The vivid decoration of the fabric is reproduced by hand with designs that symbolize the local tradition.
For its creations Effei sources its supplies from Gie Cabes, a collective of artisans in the textile sector that aims to promote the craftsmanship of Burkina Faso and Mali by establishing a reliable supply chain that meets international criteria and offers job opportunities to marginalized communities.
