"Sewing is therapy to me," says Judith, the Ugandan artisan who makes this graphic weekender bag, "it helps me channel negative energy into beautiful pieces of shareable love." Made from waxed cotton with a zip top, roomy open interior, and sturdy carry handles, it's perfectly sized for overnight trips and workout sessions.
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.
