Scenes from Mali by Zainab Sumu

Just happily lost an hour or so wandering through these holiday snaps taken by Zainab Sumu, which capture the essence of her debut collection of silk and cashmere scarves inspired by indigenous textile designs and artisanal dyeing techniques in select regions of Northern and Western Africa. It was also lovely to hear that Sumu aims to open a production facility in Mali with the intention of giving back to the community through exploring economic development via partnerships with artisans and assorted communities.
