  1. Hi Danny, i was at the British Museum today, at the Grayson Perry “The tomb of the unknown craftsman” exhibition and i saw an item of clothing that reminded me of what you make… i thought you might like to see it. Im not sure how old it is but it was registered with museum in 1940. They think its originally from Nigeria, it is a cotton stitched tunic with prayers painted on it. Here is the link:
