My journey to Scotland in 2017 and research on culture and fabric
My visit to Scotland and the research about fabric and how they have managed to bring this into their family culture. Why this fabric is part of a family tree.
I spoke to Tartan and informed them that I was going to make Mbereko carry with their fabric. They found this very fascinating because I was probably one of the first to come up with this suggestion of carrying the babies in this modern day.
We know that in the ancient times and during war, the Scottish used their blankets to carry babies whenever they were running away during war.
A few years later Queen Elizabeth came up with this idea of a Pram. Whether this has helped the communities and the new society. That’s another story you can read in one of our blogs hair within this blog.
Africans have done this for decades. If you look at what Ghanaian people, with their popular handwoven fabric.
I have done a survey on why Africans are dropping this tradition. Of-course not all Africans dropped this part of culture but through this research most are learning.
When the British went to Africa, they definitely acquired Africans traditions, the same applies to the Dutch people who actually are still selling the African machinery manufactured fabric to Africans at a higher price yet Africans used to do this on their own. As you can see in the pictures. I am always wearing an African fabric as a symbol.My mission is for African to start again to weave as they used to do,
