“Equatorial”–Selvedge magazine focuses on Africa


The July/August issue of Selvedge has the beautiful cover image shown above and the inspiring cover line “Equatorial: Circling the globe to find fine textiles.” Africa is a particular focus of the issue, with an extended feature on Cape Verde weaving by academics Clifford Pereira and Neil Williams, illustrated by some images I supplied, including the “panos d’obra” cloth below.


Others in an eclectic selection look at the colours of Senegal, the production of plastic mats, and a project to make designer hats in Uganda.
