INSPIRATION:

Inspired by body markings of warrior tribes of Gar in South Sudan and the Yoruba tribe of Nigeria, I decided to make a collection highlighting the culture, spirituality, strengths, rite of passage and beauty associated with these tribes.

Tribal marks are also used as an indicator of which tribe a person belongs to. There are a number of African cultures spread across the continent that have traditionally used scarification and cicatrisation as a form of body art.

Using my inspiration I made artwork/ patterns that showcased some of these markings in my apparel.
