Brightness of Africa

I was instantly taken back to my roots when my best friend sent me an image of her latest project – oooohhhh I love a new project!

She is embarking on a bit of fabric lovin’ and is making herself some bed linen.  But what made me so happy was the pattern and colour selection she had chosen, and that is certainly one thing African is good at.

When you stop and really look, the colours, layers, designs and patterns just burst to life. The rawness that lies before you makes you wonder as you continue to search for what traditions are held by these tribes – as every piece holds a story.

Next time you are on your travels, collect a few items that you can display in your home, not only will it remind you of your fab holiday but it will also keep the tradition alive amongst the artists.
