Silk Scarves

A Kanga Series

 

East African Kangas are a garment traditionally used as a means of communication. I had wanted to explore textile design, so I took this medium and reinterpreted it as western communication using my own design sense.

Project is based off of my design research in Zanzibar, made possible by grants from VCU UROP and VCUArts. 


 "Anja in Kanga" 

Here are some images of my dog, Anja, modeling my silk scarves, just because she's a great model... and she's easy to bribe... and she's never catty.
