Made some sketches on African theme. Don’t know how to use them for textile design yet, need to wait for some enlightment.
Original African textile designs are simple and have a sense of rythm. Tribal culture in general is very much based on ‘rythm’, probably reflecting a heartbeating. Have a look on my African textils collection on http://www.pinterest.com/marinaalin/african-textils/ if you’re interested.
