David Adjaye has launched a collection of colorfully patterned African textiles. The visual culture of Africa is infused with a variety of colors and interesting design patterns that are reflective in the African textiles from Adjaye's collection.
This project by Adjaye allowed him to collaborate with Dorothy Cosonas who is a creative director. Each pattern is comprised of fabric materials such as upholstery, drapery and wall coverings. This thick material makes each bold pattern stand out even more on the heavy-weighted fabrics.
The inspiration from this collection comes from Adjaye's childhood that was spent in Africa. He also spent a good portion of his adult life visiting Africa, which solidified his choice in creating the textiles to resemble this part of the globe. Adjaye gave each different fabric a name based on a significant African location.
