West African Adire Inspired Pattern

Textile Design Lab’s Summer of Creativity (virtually) traveled this week to West Africa. We explored kente cloth, bogolan and adire textiles. For the weekly brief, I was insipred by the handcrafted texture of the adire designs.

Here’s what I came up with.

Due to time constraints, I added the texture digitally. But how fun would it be to re-create this design using a gel glue resist method?
