African Fabric Memories

I have mentioned before my love of Zambian chitenges, and I plan to add a few more pictures of women wearing these in the future. A strange coincidence then, to receive a package in the mail from an old friend from Zambia, containing 4 new chitenges. The patterns are above, I love the last one in particular.
It is amazing, the variety of colours and designs that go into designing these vibrant pieces of fabric, from mobile phone and razor blade prints, to op artesque patterns. And I am touched that my friend sent me such a thoughtful gift, all the way from Zambia
