I am very grateful for the support of the BEDG, without which, I would not have exhibited in my first overseas trade show. Having shown in New York, I now have orders and contacts from the US and around the world. Many thanks to Pamela and Karin for their help.

Culture, Beauty, Identity - Indigenous Traditional Skills and Cultural Identity as ‘Added Value’ in the Contemporary Revival of West Africa’s Textile Heritage

This summer the British European Design Group, London and the Burkina based charitable non-government organisation SOS-SaveOurSkills present the exhibition ‘Stripcloth Splendours - Contemporary Revival of West Africa’s Textile Heritage’ as part of the British Council’s International Architecture and Design Showcase 2012. Drawn from the unique ‘Projet de Tissage’ in Burkina Faso, this exhibition brings together for the first time in the UK, the story of the ancient textile traditions and heritage of West Africa and its survival in the 21st Century.
