Here are some of my favorite African artisans showing at Sante Fe this weekend that you must see:
The Roots Project from Juba, South Sudan with their beaded jewelry. The picture above is of a Dinka beaded corset.
Touareg jewelry from Moussa Albaka a silversmith from Agadez, Niger.
and Aboubakar Fofana from Mali with his indigo designs. Totally regret not going to check out his workshop in Mali. My friend, a Canadian textile designer who interned with him called him "the master". Now that's quite the statement..
