African textiles..

Run by Duncan Clarke, Adire African Textiles is a London gallery specialising in vintage African textiles. Its online resource centre is here and blog is here. There's a brilliant entry on Aso Oke here.

Really cool blog there. Fascinating pictures too, capturing a time when colonization was spreading like wild fire. It's rather intriguing to see some Chiefs wearing western made boots in some of the pictures on the blog.
The whole thing just makes me want to dig out some historical journals and books on how Africa was colonized…but I don’t want to be depressed so I’ll pass.
