A long and elegant pencil skirt , slit at the back. A meeting between Faso dan fani from Burkina Faso and Tie & Dye du Bazin from Mali.

It was by composing this range of fabrics with vibrant patterns and flamboyant colors that I was inspired to create this unique piece. And before having the honor of reworking these beautiful fabrics in my studio, I spent years collecting and studying the fabrics and the stories they tell. This deep interest in combining textiles of all kinds is at the heart of my creative process.

The beautiful gold and purple fabrics on the front sides and middle back of the skirt are artisanal cotton weaves , which are called Faso dan Fani or " woven loincloths ". They were made in the Gonghin district of Ouagadougou, in Burkina Faso, by Lydie Nikiéma, an artisan weaver who creates these marvels from her family courtyard.

The yellow, orange and purple tie and dye placed on the front and on the sides of the back is a prestigious textile, originating from Mali, which is called Bazin . It was tied and dyed in the Wolofo Bougou district of Bamako, by the great craftsmen Modibo Samake and Mariam Coulibaly.

The cut of the model is rather adjusted and close to the body, which has the effect of lengthening the silhouette and highlighting the curves of the body. For a harmonious fall and optimal comfort, I lined the fabrics with a thinner and lighter cotton . Its pretty slit cutout at the back allows you to walk and move freely. It can easily be worn with a crop top or a wrap top from my collection, flat sandals or even high heels.

Made with great care and finesse, this unique piece, entirely handmade , required twelve hours of work, from researching the fabrics, through the composition of the patchwork to the manufacturing stages.
