I am thrilled to report that depite the fact that all members of the team, despite face masks, hand washing, social distancing, have recovered from bouts of Covid. Thanks to you they minimized their contacts with others outside the team workshop. Thank you you they kept working as was their wish. As I know many of you know that minimizing contact in an African is very difficult. Mamy, the team director was very, very ill. Somehow they all got through it.
Because we have lost several of our buyers and the world economy is depressed, the workers had time to develop their own artistic skills and ideas. I am attaching a few pitures of new textile designs. The large textile is made up of 6 different pieces sewn together for shipping. As a whole it is magnificent and suggests a celebration to me - I can't decide whether I should break it up or keep it as a whole. Any suggestions? Ideas of buyers? museums?
The team is now on their yearly, month-long break. We are hopeful that 2021 will be an extrordinarily good year for all.
