Plain white cotton becomes a deep midnight blue accent pillow in the hands of skilled batik craftswomen in Eswatini, Southern Africa. Swirling patterns show the tiny cracks and feathering one expects in traditional batik textiles. Zip closure at the bottom seam for easy washing.
The National Museum of African Art began as a private educational institution in 1964 to promote cross-cultural understanding in the social sciences and arts. Founded by Warren M. Robbins, it was known as the Museum of African Art and located on Capitol Hill in a townhouse that had been the home of Frederick Douglass, the African American abolitionist and statesman. In 1979 the museum became part of the Smithsonian Institution, the world's largest museum and research complex dedicated to the increase and diffusion of knowledge.
