Hello! I am Abdoulay, a weaving artisan based in Ziguinchor. I run this atelier alone, since my collaborators left for working in big cities. Weaving to create a piece of textile takes a lot of time, and people often don't realise that, and they are don't give it the right value. Nevertheless I keep doing this work because I love it, and I think it is a pity to loose such an old and rich tradition. A wish? That people knew the work behind a weaved textile and that they could appreciate it better.
