Saw these awesome pieces in my history of art class today. They’re re-purposed, discarded strips of cloth often imprinted with characters like Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, that have been shipped to West Africa and turned into something beautiful by Yoruba weavers. Art from Western industrial detritus. Should have taken better shots but most of the pieces were already packed away…
