To create our Ndar print, Math equations are digitally generated, graphed and hand-painted on with touches of oranges, turquoise blues and monochromes, inspired by the island's vibrant architecture. The resulting abstract pattern is printed on fabrics.
Our rich African heritage is paramount in our design process as we work with local artisans and seamstresses whose traditional techniques are passed from previous generations.
