African Baroque

AFRICAN BAROQUE features a small collection of unique textile accessories. After several years in the fine art world, Colleen exchanged inky fingers and the smell of turpentine for the vibrant colours and gorgeous textures of African hand-made beads and textiles. 


To combine authentic and ethically produced materials such as mudcloth, Shweshwe, African indigo cloth and silk, and embellish them with recycled, handmade beads sourced in remote rural villages and bustling markets to create handcrafted wearable art, in order to keep African traditions alive.
