I guess this is inspiration in reverse. I did the pattern first (see sweet pea pattern) and it called to mind kente fabric. So with a simple trip to google. I called up this gorgeous example of African fabric design, which I think rivals anything on etsy. And what a price. So here's my plug for bridgeforafrica.org, bringing us beautiful things and doing good in the process. So from here I'm off to order my very own Zambian Handbag sling.
