I'm So Into Blue
All the talk about blues yesterday at the Ralph Lauren fabric preview reminded me of this article. I clipped it from the April 2009 issue of Traditional Home magazine. I was really drawn to the article for two reasons. First, my love of textiles and how they are produced. The "artist" - (proper title) who created them, Aboubakar Fofana dedicated much of his life learning the techniques used by master dyers from around the world including Ghana in West Africa (which I love). The second reason I was drawn to the article is because of Mr. Fofana's passion for dyeing fabrics. His story speaks to the nature of those who pursue excellence in their chosen craft. For me true luxury lies in possessing things are made well by men who love and respect the process of creating.
