From the workshop: Sari

What catches my eye at first is the design and the colour range of the Sari. The patterns that are displayed in it resembles the Algerian berber original patterns of my country situated in north Africa. I am amazed by the cultural links that people can make when seeing an object without knowing anything from its history or even its background. Cultural objects are not proper to any specific region but they are the cultural heritage of the world. Heritage connects continents together so this is why one should showcase it to the world! There is a lot more to discover from each other, in one way or another: we are all distant relatives.
