Fabric is an essential part of life in West Africa. People wear colorful fabrics not only as a fashion statement, but also as a way to express their views. These 20 exquisite drawings show scenes from daily life - spending time with family, kids pounding millet as part of their daily chores, and even the process of checking bee hives! Stories accompany each drawing, and each scene includes a textile backdrop featuring the cloth of West Africa. These fabrics are part of Hollis Chatelain's personal collection from her twelve years in Africa.
