I'd been eyeing this for a while now but my friends snatched it up and gave it to me for my birthday! It's created from dyed material made just outside of Fatick. The whole village is involved in creating bright-colored pillowcases, bedspreads, clothes using African prints but with an appeal to Toubabs . The company is a co-operative, sharing its profit equally amongst all villagers. Posted by Hello

Isn't it great? In all fairness, I did mean to buy it for myself. I have good taste, my friends are just smart enough to realize that. :)
