The African Textiles book on Kuba is not yet available for me to collect from the CSM library, so I had been primary researching by Covent Garden today. During my browsing in the homeware and furniture shop - Petersham Nurseries, there was a hand brush made out of rice straw, which caught my attention immediately. Its unusual curve, and stiffness draws a visual and texture correlation with the Kuba garments. However, they both seem unrefined and organic so I may need to think of how to balance this roughness for my next week's project.
