Amongst the traditional dyers of Sierra Leone, SeneGambia there is a highly and advanced textile art form called Gara the word means indigo and is from the word ‘gareh’ which is a Koranko/ Mandinka. The term Gara is generically now used to describe any tie dyed cloth whether natural or synthetic dyes and any colour. Garafini continues with my love affair with dyed fabric, My first introduction into the creative world particulaly the traditional dyers and tiers of West Africa. continuing the tradition focusing on natural dyes grown in the farm.
