Inspiration from Tanzania

Oh the colors of kanga cloth and the beasts of the Serengeti.  Tanzania is a vibrant, magical country both for the incredible natural areas and for the vibrant cultures in the highland and on the coast.  This cheetah was watching the beginning of the wildebeest calving with anticipation.

I  feel inspired by the patterns. Here is a piece that reminds me of Zanzibar’s women who wear black abaya with bright, printed shawls or head coverings.
