I admire the look of vintage bandanas and I have a love for bold African patterns. So, I decided to mash them up.
The EVERYDAY pattern is a contemporary take on Central African textiles. The concept derived from my research on the uncommonly known history of Indigo plantations in S. Carolina during 1747-1800. Majority of the experienced cultivators of the Indigo plant that worked these harsh fields came from Angola. Symbolism and storytelling is a key factor in African textiles. I want people to feel inspired every time they see this art. Knowing that everyday in a big or small way you are making history and making a difference.
