Dye Pit Collection

Our Dye Pit Collection is made from Nigerian Cotton that has been dyed in the ancient Kofar Mata Dye Pits.

Founded in 1498, the Kofar Mata Dye Pits located in Kano, Nigeria are said to be the oldest in Africa and the last of their kind. The techniques used at the Kofar Mata dye pits have not evolved with time, the dying practices have remained the same for centuries. 

All pieces in our Dye Pit Collection have been hand dyed by these highly skilled craftsmen, and by purchasing from this collection, you are directly supporting the dyers at the Kofar Mata dye pits.
