While sourcing fabric in Ghana, I was transported back to my childhood. Sitting in the shop at the market, watching my mom and grandmother, sell fabric. Fascinated, as they suggested the best textile for any occasion. The feeling of the textile in my hands, as I learned to measure, fold and display it. The exciting chatter amongst business women and shoppers alike.
In that moment, I remembered where it all started.
The process of my creativity became anew.
To remember, to know where one comes from, is to re-discover your true self.
It is to be re-birthed.
