My boyfriend and I have recently moved to an apartment together and now that we’ve finally unpacked our boxes and put away all of our things now the fun part can begin – decorating!
We were having trouble picking a theme but we decided to with a worldly theme – meaning different pieces from different parts of the world. I have been looking online for some new accent pillows for our couch and I stumbled upon The Sankofa Center. The Sankofa Center is a non-profit that uses African dance and music to teach communities in Ghana about HIV/AIDS to help dispel myths about virus/disease and potentially save lives.
The Sankofa Center online store features fair trade handmade items designed with wax-printed fabric that have been created in partnership with Ghanaian designers. I really like the African Fabric Pillow Cover in blue because it not only goes perfectly with our worldly theme, but the bright blue design will be the perfect touch of color for the warmer months! I really like that, since this is a pillow cover I can take it off my pillows and easily wash them and maybe even change them out for one of the other two pillow cover designs available!
Please check out The Sankofa Center website to find out more about the organization and shop for more unique handmade items! All proceeds go to supporting this great cause.
