The Inspiration behind the Djenne Collection
I've always been predominantly inspired by architecture but upon visiting la grande mosque du Djenne in central Mali, I was completely spellbound by the brilliance of its structure complete with elongated pillars, intricately created palm branches that double as beams, petite window roofs and minarets with ostrich eggs.
As if this Unesco world heritage site wasn't enough, the culturally enriching atmosphere of being present on market day with local artisans and community members was an unforgettable experience for me. And its one that I will always cherish as my memories of this day formed the foundation for creating and launch collection of scarves, each of them influenced by prints that I witnessed men and women wearing on this special day.
Eh voila! Our very first collection comprising six individual scarf designs.
