Lately, I’ve been interested in African fabrics, especially the bright, vibrant colors. What is interesting is that I chose the colors based on the contrast; however, the colors all have wide-reaching meanings in various regions on the African continent. Blue: Omnipotence of the sky, pure spirit. Yellow and Orange: high worth, richness, fertility, vitality. Black: seriousness, union with ancestors, spiritual awareness. Finally, the shape the of the hexagon generally means harmony, symmetry and balance. Without knowing it, the print named itself.
