We are so thankful to have been able to showcase our work on this platform and could not have done so without the support of the BEDG. Thank you!

Culture, Beauty, Identity - Indigenous Traditional Skills and Cultural Identity as ‘Added Value’ in the Contemporary Revival of West Africa’s Textile Heritage

This summer the British European Design Group, London and the Burkina based non-government organisation SOS-SaveOurSkills present the exhibition ‘Stripcloth Splendours’ as part of the Maison & Objet’s 2012 Animation programme. Drawn from the unique ‘Projet de Tissage’ in Burkina Faso, this exhibition brings together for the first time in France, the story of the ancient textile traditions and heritage of West Africa and its survival in the 21st Century.
