Inspired by the beauty and solutions Africa has to offer. For example, SÙNTÚ means "inspire" in the Nupe language of Nigeria, West Africa. Inspired by the rich fabric colors and craftsmanship of the Nupe culture during one of my visits, I was delighted to make it the alias of this collection, a majority of what you'll see in this board. I can't get over the breathtaking beauty of God's creativity from land to land; and to think... it all began with Words!
