Ananse Village, located on Highway One, just south of Fort Bragg is entering the fall season with a number of surprising changes. They have enlarged their retail space by almost 300%. Which of course, means a huge increase in their tantalizing inventory. This is of particular interest to textile addicts because it means more beautiful pants, tops, long and short dresses, scarves, shawls, beads and baskets. And perhaps, most wondrous of all, they have shelves and shelves of stunning, hand dyed fabrics. Of course they also carry a most unusual line of books dealing with fabrics, music, architecture, habitats and more. Alongside of these items you will find musical instruments, drums and furniture, particularly from Africa. At some point this fall they will be showing and selling the amazing collection of Guatamalan textiles collected by Raffa, a much loved, recently deceased member of our coastal community.
Besides all their recently arrive new items, Ananse Village is preparing to offer a tantalizing new service. One of their long time employees, Sandra Lindstrom, is going to make sample garments from some of their one of a kind hand dyed fabrics. Then Ananse Village will take orders for garments made to order out of their large fabric collection. This means that we, their ardent supporters, will be able to have personally chosen fabric made into a pattern of our choice by one of the north coast’s finest seamstresses. How good can it get? We at Pacific Textile Arts, try too boast the wonders of Ananse Village at every opportunity because they are outstanding people running a unique business according to the best fair trade policies, as well as underwriting many community micro-businesses in Africa. We salute them and the work they do for humanity.
