AFRICAN CULTURE MEETS WESTERN CULTURE ON THE RAILWAY.

It finally arrived in the mail!! You may be wondering what it is, but it is the 'button looking things' my sister made for me. I put up a picture of them in one of my previous posts, remember? I did not tell you what I was going to use those 'button looking things' for, but I am letting the cat out of the bag in this post :) Okay they are pin-back buttons made out of Ankara (an African fabric). As you may already know, pin back buttons have a pin clip at the back of them that one uses to attach them to any fabric material. Usually pin-back buttons are used to adorn clothing; ranging from shirts, jackets, waist coats e.t.c. They are usually made out of plastic synthetic material with pictures, captions, or patterns on them, but I have not seen any made out of African fabric like these ones. This is a unique idea which is why I love them :)

I also promised in one of my previous posts that I would start taking outdoor pictures. As you would see in the pictures below I fulfilled my promise. I think this is not a bad try for the first time. It was actually fun doing this. Anyways enjoy!







The last picture simply tells you - "This is the end of my post. PEACE!" Have a good weekend you all :)
